HowTo: Change Default iPhone Password ( alpine ) And Increase Security

Every iPhone in the world has the same username ( root ) and password ( alpine ) . This opens the door to exploits. Luckily there is a quick fix for this:

1. Install Terminal from Cydia

2. Load terminal and type:

  • su root
  • alpine

by doing that you are logged in as root. Once you are logged in as root type this:

  • passwd
  • passwd mobile

when you type “passwd” and “passwd mobile” and hit return it will prompt you to type your new password. You will have to type it twice.

Thats it.
