Mikrotik is a Latvian-based company that specializes in manufacturing routers and wireless ISP systems. They also develop other hardware such as access points and network switches, as well as sophisticated software like operating systems and auxiliary software. Mikrotik operates globally, providing connectivity to many individuals and businesses around the world. Mikrotik routers function by using Mikrotik’s own RouterOS software system, which allows for a stable and secure connection.
Mikrotik sells a variety of router models, each one specifically designed to fit niche connectivity needs. Regardless of which device you chose, it will operate using the RouterOS software. For device setup, you need to install the RouterOS software and then follow the setup instructions. When setting up, every Mikrotik router is configured with the IP address 192.168.88.1/24, with a default username labeled ‘Admin’. There is no default password on the device. After logging for the time thing, it is essential that you have a new user profile along with a secure account password.
Default user login information usually comes standard with router devices, as well as firewalls, switches, and access points. This makes the setup of the device universal across the brand’s range of devices. However, the purpose of this default login information is only to make setup easy and simple, so once it is set up, you must create your own account with a new and secure password.
If unedited, these default settings pose a huge security risk. Default account information for most devices can easily be found online through an internet search. Thus, you are made vulnerable to attack. This is especially dangerous when it comes to network devices such as routers. With access to your router, a hacker can easily gain access to information on any device connected to the router’s network.
If your network router gets hacked, you are at risk for the following:
To protect yourself, it is advised that you change the default information when you set up your device for the first time. When doing so, it is critical to create a password that is strong and secure.

Recently, more and more people have begun to use the internet, and it has become an integral part of our daily lives. Because of this, cybercrime has become increasingly common. However, most internet users are unaware of this danger, and how weak passwords make you vulnerable to attack.
Creating strong passwords is not only a challenge in itself, but remembering these is just as hard. Have you ever been unsure if the one you created was reliable? Or do you find yourself constantly forgetting your passwords? The best solution to both of these problems is to use a password manager. This is software that has been designed to securely store passwords for you, so you no longer have to keep track of them yourself.
Such managers come in two main types: Web browser based managers and password manager applications. Although web browser managers are free and easy to use, the information they save is only accessible on one browser, and this poses an inconvenience. Manager applications, on the other hand, are far more convenient. They let you access your login information from multiple browsers, devices, and operating systems.
The password manager you decide to use will depend on your needs. At Passwarden, we offer a variety of packages, providing you with everything you are looking for in a manager, whether you are an individual or a business. Our software is advantageous because it is designed to create strong passwords for you, guaranteeing that these will not be easy to crack. Additionally, if your information is leaked at any point, our software will notify you immediately and prompt you to edit it.
