HOW CAN I SECURE MY HOME WI-FI CONNECTION?

There are several steps you can take to help keep your home’s Wi-Fi connection secure. These require you to first sign-in to your router as the administrator and access its “Settings” by utilizing your device’s web browser, where you will type your router’s IP address. Review the points below to help ensure a secure Wi-Fi connection for your home.

  • Make sure that your Wi-Fi connection and device passwords meet WPA2 security standards.
    This security certification program developed by the Wi-Fi Alliance to secure wireless computer networks is enabled by default on most routers. It requires your Wi-Fi network password and all passwords that you have for your devices to be of a certain combination of letters, numbers, and symbols to keep them secure. A simplistic password will put your home Wi-Fi network at greater risk and in the case of a security breach, you will regret having chosen something simple for apparent convenience.
  • Change your Wi-Fi access password regularly.
    While you will have to reconnect all of your devices each time you do this, it is an important step in keeping your Wi-Fi connection secure.
  • Update your router’s firmware whenever needed.
    This software, which sets the security standards for your network and how your devices can connect to it, often self-updates. If it isn’t updating, check your router instructions for the way to do it. These updates are created for a reason.
  • Use a Guest Network if your router has this feature.
    This allows you to give your guests access to your Wi-Fi connection without providing them access to your entire network.
