What are the default administrator username and password in QTS?

Applied models:

The default administrator username and password in QTS vary depending on your QTS version.

  • QTS 4.4.1 (or earlier)
    The default administrator login credentials for QTS 4.4.1 (or earlier) are the following.
    Username: admin
    Password: admin
  • QTS 4.4.2 (or later)
    Starting from QTS 4.4.2, the default password for “admin” is the first MAC address of your NAS without special characters. All letters should be uppercase.

For details, see the following information:
Default password of admin is changed to first MAC Address after QTS 4.4.2

If you have changed but forgot your password, press the Reset button on the rear panel of your NAS for 3 seconds to reset the password. After the reset, you can log in with the default credentials.
If you still cannot log in with default credentials even after resetting the password, you can try accessing the NAS from the backend. For details, see the following FAQ:
