How do I make my wifi more secure?
In order to help protect your wireless network from unauthorized access and harmful threats, it is important that your wifi is password protected. With an “open” or unsecured wireless network, your internet traffic may not be encrypted, and your personal information is at risk. There are a variety of different security protocols available on routers, please visit the instructions below to get started.

It’s also a good idea to change the default password on your ROUTER. Remember, this is not your wifi password – this is the password that protects your router’s settings and configuration. For example, most Netgear routers come pre-programmed with the Username: admin, Password: password. Unless you change that default password, anyone can log into your router and get access to your home network.
