Good point Karit.

I thought that 2 sessions would not be allowed too...!

And there SHOULD be a sticker or at least something that warns users they are not allowed to share/gift/sell or whatever else their routers, because they compromise their account safety...
And by having a look in the routers, the ones I have access to are preconfigured with the account name and password.

Here's how to change the settings for your Vodafone broadband login details being sent to your Vodafone Broadband Complete modem

Go to www.vodafone.co.nz and sign into My Account (Internet & landline), then in the menu on the left click on "Manage your modem".

But is that printed on each modem so the user knows about these potential security issues I would say the vast majority of users would never know about this issue and to visit that site until it is too late and someone else is using their connection.

I want to go to Trademe and conduct some research to see how many users selling modems know to wipe the settings and to contact their ISP to deregister their modem. I guess this number will be close to zero.

This could also be an interesting case when it comes to the 3 strikes legislation.

Shame there are legal issues around stealing someone's service.
