So you got yourself the Faiba 4G Mi-Fi at a distributor near you, and perhaps they did not set you up with unique SSID (the name of your Wi-Fi network) and password. By default, the network SSID will be something like Faiba4G_084FFC and the default password is 12345678.
Obviously leaving the Wi-Fi login credentials leaves your network easily prone to piggybacking (unauthorized person accessing Wi-Fi network consuming your data and even snooping around your shared folders in your computers). You need to change the network SSID and password to prevent piggybacking and other serious forms of hacking.
