How do I secure my wifi router from hackers/neighbours ?

 

  1. Login to Router Settings and Create Strong Password
  • Do not leave username as ‘admin’ change as you preferred and change password from ‘admin’ to strong password (combination of alphanumeric).
  1. Disable network SSID from broadcast
  • SSID is wireless network name. Disable SSID means neighbour can’t see your wireless network name in the list when they search.
  1. Create Strong WiFi Password
  • Creating strong WiFi password makes difficult to hack. Enable WiFi encryption as WPA2 Personal.
  1. MAC Address Filtering
  • Enable MAC address filtering allows registered devices allows access to your network.
