To boost security of firewalls, I would like to be able to change the username "admin" to something else.
That way, a hacker would need to guess both the username and password.
This is being more commonly added to other vendors products and I welcome the option to do it with ZyXEL as well.

    You could set the admin password to a long random thing that nothing can hack it over time and make another user with admin rights.
