When installing WinCC, the user named "Administrator" is created automatically in the User Administrator. Since this user also needs a Password, a standard password is used, which you should change when configuring.

With a new project the user named "Administrator" is always created in the WinCC User Administrator. The associated password is "Administrator".

Please change this default password for the user named "Administrator" to a password of your choice.
