PLDT Home Fibr is one of the fastest consumer broadband Internet plans in the Philippines, with speeds of up to 100 Mbps. Most PLDT Fibr subscribers use the default login credentials of their router/modem, which has some vulnerability or weakness. So it is an integral part to change your PLDT Fibr WiFi password immediately.

If you're a new PLDT Fibr subscriber, securing your network is very important. PLDT Fibr default WiFi password and SSID is printed at the bottom of the modem.
