How To Secure Our Home Network

Securing a home network is important to protect your personal information and devices from cyber threats. Here are some steps to secure your home network:

  1. Change the default login credentials: Routers often come with easily guessable default login credentials, change them to a strong, unique username and password.

  2. Enable WPA3 encryption: WPA3 is the latest and most secure form of Wi-Fi encryption, use it to protect your network and data from unauthorized access.

  3. Disable WPS: Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) can make it easier for attackers to gain access to your network, disable it in your router's settings.

  4. Use a strong password: A strong password is a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols, and is at least 12 characters long.

  5. Disable remote management: Unless you specifically need remote management, disable it in your router's settings to prevent unauthorized access to your network.

  6. Keep your router firmware up-to-date: Regularly checking for and installing firmware updates can help fix security vulnerabilities in your router.

  7. Use a guest network: Consider setting up a separate guest network for visitors to your home, this can help keep your personal network separate and secure.

By following these steps, you can help protect your home network and the devices connected to it from cyber threats.
