Description

Securing your internet connection is crucial for protecting your online privacy.                                                                                                   

Goals

Use a Strong Password:
Ensure that your Wi-Fi network is password-protected with a strong, unique password. Avoid using default passwords provided by the router manufacturer.

Enable WPA3 Encryption:
Use the latest encryption protocol available for your Wi-Fi network. WPA3 is the latest standard, providing enhanced security compared to older protocols like WPA2.

Regularly Update Router Firmware:
Keep your router's firmware up to date. Manufacturers release updates to fix security vulnerabilities, and regularly updating your router ensures that you have the latest security patches.

Change Default Router Login Credentials:
Change the default username and password for accessing your router's settings. Default credentials are well-known and can be exploited by attackers.

Network Segmentation:
Consider setting up a guest network for visitors. This isolates your primary devices from potential security threats introduced by guests' devices.
