Change PLDT Fibr admin password
Why we should change PLDT Fibr Admin password? How important it is? Do we really need to make a change?
Fibr admin password is different from your PLDT Fibr WiFi Password. If we talk about the admin password, it means the router’s password. The one that we use to login into our PLDT router’s dashboard.
For those who do not know how it looks like or what it is? I would like to introduce to you, the 7 PLDT Default passwords and the 15 new PLDT Default usernames and passwords | Updated.
Why Change PLDT Fibr admin password?
I think these are the (2) two most reasonable reasons to change PLDT Fibr admin password.
1. SECURITY – We all know, how important it is to change a password, not just on our PLDT Fibr admin password. But even on our email, social media account and so on.
If we modify our PLDT Fibr admin password, it will give us a sense of security. Why? Because if we use the password that PLDT generated for us. We don’t have the assurance that nobody knows about it, except us. Am I right?
The bad news. PLDT generated exactly the same admin passwords for each routers that has the same brand and model, respectively. So, it seems we really need to replace our PLDT Home Fibr admin account password. To keep our router and network safer.
2. MAKE-IT-EASY-TO-REMEMBER – Personalized password is better than the generated one. It will be easier to remember because you’re the one who made it, and you can make it more secure. As for me, I am more inclined to make a “sentence password” rather just a “word” or “alphanumeric combinations”.
