How do I recover my CradlePoint Router Default Username?

This brief article explains what you need to do if you are unable to login due to not knowing your username on a Cradlepoint.


When attempting to login to the router’s setup pages at, you are prompted for a username and password, but you do not know your username.


  • If you have not configured the router to use a username then by default the username is “admin” (username is case sensitive).
  • If you think you may have set up a username, but cannot remember what it is, you can perform a hard reset to get the settings back to factory default.
  • If you are not sure how to do a reset and have a series 3 router, please click Series 3: Factory Reset your Cradlepoint Router.
