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.

VodafoneDylan: 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.
