Default passwords for new companies and demo company

To improve security, we've added a default password to the demo company, as well as any new companies created in version 2023.1 and later.

The default password is Admin. We recommend changing it for any newly created company databases.

Existing databases unaffected The new default password does not apply to any existing payroll files, they will keep their existing passwords, even if they do not have one. Only newly created files and the demo company will have the new default password added.
