What most people think it looks like when you change router's admin password, apparently

Daily Mail Headline here, meaningless numbers coming from a crappy poll

82% of users includes home users AND business users?

Because i bet that if you took the home users out, the number would drop to 2% or something.

After all its only the American Government and .Govt.uk who leave router passwords as default.

Home users on the other hand run the risk of not getting support, or worse charged for damage, if they play with settings on the hardware they are supplied.

Half the time it turns out that the small print means you are only loaned the equipment that you paid so much for and the rest of the time that equipment may as well be black box for all the changes that a home user can make to it.
