Default Credential for Routers

Generally, a network/security administrator makes the mistake of leaving the default credentials of the router. While performing VAPT, trying to log in with the default username and password for the router can help you get access to the router and the internal network. Default credentials can be found in multiple ways. 

The credentials can be obtained from the router hardware itself as they are written on the backside of the router provided you have physical access.

Secondly, you can use the Router Passwords website to find the default password. Passwords can vary with the model number of the router with respect to the company. But some common ones are mentioned below.

Router Brand Username Password IP Address
BenQ admin admin
D-Link admin admin
Digicom admin michelangelo
Netgear admin password
Asus admin admin
Dell admin password
Netcomm admin password
Netstar admin admin
Samsung admin password
Sigma admin admin
SUN admin admin
Telco Systems telco telco
Tenda admin admin
ZTE admin admin
3Com admin admin
