Effects of changing PW for VF online Services

I'm trying to change my PW for the online service (check my broadband traffic etc), and I get the following popup warning:

 

   Don't forget - if you've got Vodafone broadband, you'll also need to update your password in your broadband hardware to your new password as well (otherwise your broadband won't work!).

 

Does this mean that the PW to access my router -which I have recently changed from the browser access- will be updated to match my new online services PW?

 

I hope the question is clear enough 

 

Thanks

@alex88 no this will not change the local admin password for the router GUI you have changed. 

 

This is your Vodafone service username / password for authentication. 

 

The only affect you would really see is different password for logging into MyVodafone as your internet service is using port based authentication so you wouldn't really need to update it in the router..
