11 Ways Secure Your WiFi Network

Updated: Apr 4, 2023

Here are 11 ways to secure your WiFi network:

  1. Change the default network name (SSID): Use a unique and obscure name for your network to make it harder for attackers to identify.

  2. Enable encryption: Use WPA2 encryption to secure your network.

  3. Change the default password: Use a strong and complex password for your network, and change it regularly.

  4. Disable WPS: Disable Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) as it can make your network vulnerable to brute force attacks.

  5. Enable MAC address filtering: Only allow devices with authorized MAC addresses to access your network.

  6. Enable firewalls: Enable firewalls on your router and devices to block unauthorized access to your network.

  7. Disable remote management: Disable remote management of your router to prevent unauthorized changes to your network.

  8. Disable guest networks: If you have a guest network, disable it when not in use to prevent unauthorized access.

  9. Keep firmware up to date: Update your router firmware regularly to fix security vulnerabilities.

  10. Disable UPnP: Disable Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) as it can allow attackers to bypass firewalls and access your network.

  11. Turn off SSID broadcasting: Turn off SSID broadcasting to make your network invisible to outsiders.

By following these steps, you can help ensure your WiFi network is secure and protect your personal information from unauthorized access.
