Windows systems come with an administration account, "Administrator" in the default installation. Furthermore, a Unix system administrator may choose the username "Administrator" when configuring SAMBA. A common password used for this account is "" (no password). It is best practice to remove default accounts, if possible. For accounts required by the system, the default password should be changed.

This account grants full access to the system, making it most critical to secure.
