We strongly recommend changing the default login password in order to protect your machine from unauthorized access, and to make the following features and software more secure:

  • Web Based Management
  • BRAdmin Light/BRAdmin Professional
  • Remote Setup (via a network only)
  • Firmware Update Tool

If you've created a custom password for your Brother machine's settings, and you've forgotten the password, you'll have to reset the network settings to factory default to regain access to these settings. We cannot help you recover a lost password.

(For wireless network connection user)
If your Brother machine is connected to the wireless network and reset the network settings to factory default, you must reconnect your Brother machine to the wireless network again.
