A default XProtect Basic User account admin
with default password admin
may be created during the installation process.
To prevent undesired access via XProtect Mobile, Web, or Smart Clients, the Basic User admin
must be deleted or the password must be changed.
Affected XProtect versions:
- XProtect Go (all versions)
- XProtect Express 2017 R1 (11.1a) and prior versions
- XProtect Essential 2.0 - 2017 R1
To check for the issue, open the "XProtect Management Application" and navigate to "Users". If user admin
with User Type Basic
is present, right-click on the user and select either "Delete User" or "Properties --> User Information" to change the password.
