So I was thinking why you can't un-register a device on portal.myzyxel.com and I can only think its so if someone gets your login they would be able to un-register a device but in the case where you have taken ownership of a second hand device how do you register the device to you.

So I was thinking USG/VPN have a MAC range so I was thinking if you have that info then someone can use the next hex up MAC with Serial Number to register on another account so that the device is registered to two or more accounts.

Is this a good idea?

    At current design, as long as you are the device owner and the device is on hand, you can just log in device Web GUI and register in myZyxel to claim the ownership of this device.
