I noticed that LCOs set really bad password on Excitel Portal. Almost every time your password is same as username, 123456,12345678, 11223344. My LCO set the same password as my username.

If someone unauthorized gets into your Excitel account then they can see your phone number and address.
Changing portal password doesn't change your Pppoe password, the unauthorized can still steal your Internet if they are also on excitel.

So, change your Excitel portal password to something unique that you do not use on other website

There is an Excitel account with username 'Excitel'. Username does add another layer of security but can still be guessed pretty easily. My lco gives username in format "ex_<name of customer>"

Its dangerous, but luckily Excitel doesn't allow multiple pppoe logins, so as long as you are connected, no one will be able to steal your Internet.
There was a bug in Excitel app which wasn't fixed for a week which allowed anyone to login to anyone else's account without a password. Pretty dangerous and careless.
