Default Password of PLDT Router AN5506-04

Feature image for default password of pldt router model an5506-04

The default password of PLDT router admin account (“adminpldt”) keeps on changing every now and then. As a result, the default passwords published on the internet do not work anymore. The default password used to be “1234567890”. Later, it was changed to “0123456789”. Again, not very long ago, it became “6GFJdY4aAuUKJjdtSn7dC2x”. As of 10 October 2019, in my router AN5506-04-FA, the default password is:

What follows is a step by step guide on how to find out the default password for PLDT routers, for both the “admin” and the “adminpldt” accounts. As an overview, first, we need to enable the “telnet switch” on the router’s web admin interface by logging as a SuperUser. Finally, we display the passwords for both the user (“admin”) and the admin (“adminpldt”) accounts by using a program called telnet.

Step 10

To display the password for the “admin” account, type “get web user username admin”.

Step 11

In the same manner, to display the password for the “adminpldt” account, type “get web admin username adminpldt”.

Below is the screenshot of whole telnet session, showing the hacked “admin” account password and the “adminpldt” account password.

Take note that based on the display above, my password for the “admin” account is “12345678”. Also, my password for the “adminpldt” account is “admin123”.

However, if you reset the router to the factory defaults by pressing the reset switch at the back of the router before doing the procedure outlined here, you should get the default password for PLDT routers: password “1234” for the “admin” account, and the password “z6dUABtl270qRxt7a2uGTiw” for the “adminpldt” account.

Cheer and Enjoy!
