The software ships with the default administrator credentials as `admin` and password as `admin`. This allows us to login to the server directly and perform administrative functions. Upon installation or upon first login, the application does not ask the user to change the `admin` password. On top of this, there is no warning or prompt to ask the user to change the default password, and in order to change the password, many steps are required.
