12.02 Password Protection

The setup pages of the MDA are password protected, in order to safeguard you from unintentional changes to the registration or network setup by yourself or by others.

A new MDA, straight out of the box, has the default password of: admin. If you are connected to the internet, you can perform a full owner registration, and set your own password instead of using the default one.

If you have forgotten your password, there is a submit button for requesting a new password from Thinkable next to the login prompt on the setup page. Note that you need an internet connection to do so. This new password will be send to the email address you have used for the registration of the MDA. It might take a few minutes to arrive.

If you have no internet access, and still want to use your own password, you still can enter a password, but this password will expire after six hours. This is so you have a temporary means to protect the MDA, but as there is no password retrieval mechanism without an internet connection, the password can only be temporry.

When you are finished with registration and/or network setup, it is good practice to logout from these pages, seeing there is no password required for any of the other operations on the MDA.

If you have obtained your MDA from an earlier owner, and this person has forgotten to wipe the password, there is the possibility to request a factory-reset password from Thinkable. On the Setup page, there is a request button for this. Upon clicking this button, you will so an template of the request form that you need to fill-in and email to Thinkable. You will then receive a password from Thinkable, allowing you to reset all earlier entered owner/administration data.
