Top 5 best practices to secure your home Wi-Fi

  1. Change the default name of your Wi-Fi: Change the SSID (service set identifier) to something impersonal. Avoid SSIDs like “Eric’s WiFi” or “Apartment 3A”.
  2. Update your Wi-Fi password with a strong and unique one: Creating strong and unique passwords make it difficult for hackers to access your network.
  3. Enable network encryption: Turn on your wireless router’s encryption setting immediately after the router is installed.
  4. Keep your router’s software up to date: Ensure that the router is updated with the latest security patches and no security vulnerability is left open to the cybercriminals.
  5. Use a Virtual Private Network (VPN): A VPN helps to secure sensitive information by encrypting the data, thereby protecting it from being intercepted by others.
