How to Avoid Stealing your WiFi

Your home WiFi networks help you to access the Internet from any corner with no cables. However, it also lets your neighbors steal your WiFi if it’s unsecured. As the result, you get the lower connection and your personal data can also be stolen this way.

From time to time, you need to check the list of connected devices. If there are more devices that you have at your home, it means that your neighbor may be also connected to your network. To do it, you need to open the webpage for configuring your router and find something like “connected devices”. If you don’t know how to do it, read the user manual of your router.

You should also use the latest security protocol, like WPA2. You can set it when configuring your network. This protocol is the most reliable when you want to protect your network from stealing the password.

Even if you have an expensive and professional router, it wouldn’t protect you if your password is weak. Use the complex password with a big length, numbers and uppercase characters, and special characters.

Don’t forget to update the software of your router. Check the official website of a company who developed your router and look if there any updates for your router.
