Is there any way of changing the default 'admin' account?
I would like to (1) change the default name from 'admin' to something else for security reasons. (2) remove rights such as 'connect via VPN'. While a strong password is of course good, it would make it much HARDER if a hacker had to guess both the username and the password. With a default username of 'admin' 50% of the security is already compromised.

You can assign any user with read/write access to the administration. So you can assign a personalized user as an administrator, then delete the admin account. Otherwise, you can use MyKerio for remote management and then disable or remove the traffic rule for remote administration.

When I remove user Admin, Kerio message is: You cannot remove the user "Admin".

I'm login different user (full rights) and still i can't delete user Admin - message kerio: Your cannot remove the user "Admin". Maybe in the future version firmware Kerio Box add (unblocking) only option "change username" for account Admin.
