Kali Linux and Default Password

Default passwords, also known as pre-configured passwords, are usually used for firewalls, switches, routers, etc… Their main purpose is to grant access to users on a new device for the initial setup. Those passwords are, most of the time, relatively easy so that the new user guesses them easily. The passwords can be found either on the instruction manual or on the device itself in the form of a sticker on the back for example. Some examples of a default password are password, admin, or guest.

It is important to note that those passwords are meant to be changed in the configuration step. In fact, they represent a serious risk if they are still used as the main password after the setup. By not changing the password, the user or the organization is exposing themselves and their data to serious risks. Hacking into devices that use a default password is extremely easy since they are easy to crack. Therefore, people must always make sure to change their default passwords before using a new device.
