    So far I haven't ever changed my passwords but my thinking is I haven't installed a terminal either so what's the point?

    Closest i have is ifile and i haven't used that in ages.

    Even if you dont have Terminal installed on your iphone. Someone else COULD SSH into your iphone, if they know the default password, which is common knowledge at this point. Of course they would need to be in the same network as you, nonetheless, If SSH is enabled you should always change the default password.

    If you dont have openSSH installed then its not that important to change the password.
