When you reset a device to its standard, the default username and password will be used.

This can be admin / admin, admin / , admin / password or any combination.

The best thing to do is look for the model and make of the device, and google for that + default password. Also, if you have the booklet, it will also mention what the default username and password is. Mostly used is admin / admin


If you have reset your device to factory defaults then the username and password should be on the back of the device, if you know the make/model of the device you can also go to this website and lookup the default username and password for your default.

Some of them most common ones are

  • admin , blank
  • admin , admin
  • admin , password
  • admin , root
  • root , root
