If you need a default password to get started with your Tenda router, this guide helps you through the first configuration of your device. Please read to the end of the article, where we present our handy solution to manage all your passwords safely and efficiently, including that of your Tenda router.
Tenda Technology is a Chinese leading manufacturer and supplier of networking equipment since 1999. Tenda is known to produce affordable networking devices. Tenda products include home/business networking switches, broadband CPEs, gateways, power lines, mobile broadband, IP cameras, and WIFi routers. Tenda router users may find the initialization process hard as it requires default login information. This information is available in the user manual, but you don’t have to go through it because what you need is right below.
The default password of a device is the password set by the manufacturer for the user to use upon his initial configuration of the device. Companies usually set a piece of alphanumerical text as default for the same model or batch of their products. Some web services also use default passwords for their users to sign in to their accounts for the first time. Additionally, there are top-ranking websites that post detailed lists of default usernames and passwords for each model and series of a product. The important takeaway for you is; a single password is a default for numerous devices, and this can easily get your device and data compromised.
If you don’t change your default password and use it indefinitely, you endanger your device and personal data. Default passwords are hackers’ first choice to use as attack vectors to access your device. In case your device is part of a network, the breach risk spreads throughout the company.
Default passwords serve only as placeholders of user-made custom passwords. In some device configurations, the initial setup will not proceed unless the user manually changes the default login information. But the best way to deal with default login credentials is using a dedicated password manager.
For most Tenda routers or modems, the default username is “admin”. The default password is also “admin”. In order to initialize your Tenda router, follow the steps below:
If you cannot connect to your Tenda router because you’ve lost or forgotten your password, you can always reset it. Simply hold the little reset button for 15 seconds and your router will be reset to factory settings, in which you need the default login info once again. Also, keep in mind that resetting your Tenda router will kill your internet connection, so plan ahead and prepare an alternative connection if needed.
When changing your Tenda router default password, try to create a complex one using all alphanumerical and special characters. But remembering multiple unique and complex passwords is not an easy job. If you are not gifted with a good memory, you should get a password manager that creates and stores all your passwords.
