No admin access in UEFI BIOS

Hi there
When I enter the BIOS setup, a "Enter Password" prompt appears. Without entering a password, I just have access as "User".
Is there a pre-set PW to enter the BIOS as admin?
Cheers Michael

    Still nothing about that?
    Do other users have admin access by default?

    The reason we did not provide the admin BIOS password is that the board could be bricked if a user does a wrong setting.

    With no password entered, a user can still access setup as normal mode.
    With advanced password entered, a user is granted access to CRB setup items.

    **By changing settings in CRB BIOS menus , users risk bricking the board, and can not claim the warranty if the board is bricked due to this reason.
    For the password, see the wiki: Firmware#Engineering_BIOS_password
