AnywhereUSB default password?

I just upgraded my AnywhereUSB driver and now my device is password protected. What is the default password? I never set one. Or rather, how can I reset the password to something that I choose? I didn’t notice any paper clip holes on the unit anywhere…




Hi, I’m not sure why no one responded to your first inquiry. There may be an issue with this new driver. Are you saying but just updating your drivers the configuration utility automatically set a password (the config shows “unlock”)?

It shouldn’t do that, there is no default password.

If that is the case and you can’t get anywhere without putting in a password please email me directly at

2nd generation AnywhereUSB hubs AW-USB-2 AW-USB-5 AW-USB-5M, AW-USB-14, AW-TS-44 which were running 1.x firmware with no password set, after upgrade to firmware 2.x have default login: user=root, password=dbps

They will fallback to this password after a factory reset also.

we recommend to change the password to something more secure!

Btw: this is explained in the release notes next to the firmware download section.
