Change the Default Password of Super Administrator

Applicable Version 10.00 onwards


Cyberoam is shipped with Two (2) default profiles:

Super Administrator

Super Administrator


The Super Administrator has the following credentials:


Username: admin

Password: admin


The Super Administrator has all privileges and access to the Web Admin Console as well as Cyberoam CLI. It is recommended that you change password of this super administrator immediately after deployment. As this account has super admin privileges for both the consoles, please set complex password.

This administrator has full privileges of Web Admin Console, but cannot access Cyberoam CLI. Only the Super Administrator has privileges to modify or delete the Default Administrator profile.
