Securing your WiFi network is crucial to safeguard your personal data and devices. Here are some steps you can take to make your WiFi more secure:

Strengthen your Password:

Use a strong and unique password: 

Avoid dictionary words, personal information, and simple sequences. Choose a long (12+ characters) password with a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. Consider using a password manager for safe storage and generation.

Change your password regularly: Aim to change your WiFi password every few months, especially if you suspect it might have been compromised.

Encryption and Protocols:

 Enable WPA2 or WPA3 encryption: These are the strongest security protocols currently available for home WiFi networks. Avoid outdated protocols like WEP.Disable WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup): WPS can be vulnerable to attack. If you don't use it for easy device connection, disable it for added security.

Network Management:

Hide your SSID (network name): This doesn't make your network invisible, but it prevents it from being readily discoverable by others.

 Limit guest access: Create a separate guest network with limited privileges for visitors and temporary devices.

Disable remote access: Unless absolutely necessary, disable remote access features on your router to prevent unauthorized access from outside your network.

Update your router firmware regularly: Manufacturers release firmware updates to fix security vulnerabilities. Keep your router firmware updated to benefit from these improvements.

Additional Tips:

 Filter MAC addresses: You can manage access by specifying authorized devices allowed to connect to your network.

Use a firewall: A firewall helps filter incoming and outgoing traffic, offering an extra layer of protection.

Be mindful of phishing attacks: Don't click on suspicious links or enter your WiFi credentials on unfamiliar websites.

Secure your connected devices: Ensure all devices connected to your WiFi network have strong passwords and updated software.
