How to secure your  home WIFI

Use a strong and unique password

Make sure to use a password that is at least eight characters long and includes a combination of letters, numbers, and special characters. Avoid using easily guessable passwords, such as "password" or your name.

Enable encryption

 Make sure that your WiFi network is using encryption to protect the data being transmitted over it.  The most common types of encryption are WPA2 and WPA3.

Enable firewalls

Firewalls help to prevent unauthorized access to your network by blocking incoming connections.  Make sure to enable your router's built-in firewall, or consider using a separate firewall software.

Update your router's firmware

 Router manufacturers release updates to fix security vulnerabilities and improve the performance of their devices.  Make sure to keep your router's firmware up to date.

A VPN encrypts all of your internet traffic, making it more difficult for anyone to intercept and view your data.

Use a virtual private network (VPN)

Enable two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security by requiring you to enter a code in addition to your password when logging in to your WiFi network.

Many routers come with a default name that can be easily guessed by attackers. Consider changing the name of your network to something unique and not easily guessable.
