This does not only make your connection slow, but it’s also dangerous for your record. Basically, you don’t know what other people is downloading using your Wi-Fi information. This is why having Wi-Fi Hacking Protection is so important.
Not having any security measure in your network, allows the hacker carry out cyber-attacks. And unfortunately there’s no way to identify a hacker on a network. In fact, the business which installed the wireless network might be held responsible for the illegal action.
Besides creating a long and strong password for your Wi-Fi, there are other ways to get Wi-Fi Hacking Protection.
Take a look at these tips, to avoid problems with your internet provider or even with the government:
- Wi-Fi Protected Setup.If you have Wi-Fi Protected Setup, immediately give us a call. This is the main reason why people have had hackers in their network.

This will automatically connect your computing device to your Wi-Fi router, without security prerequisites.
