Most home users today have a wireless router so they can connect other computer devices at home without having to pay for multiple internet connections. This is a great convenience since a good WiFi router can be bought for as little as $20 it is also a great savings compared to paying extra data fees from your mobile service provider. It could be disastrous though if you don't secure or encrypt your WiFi signal.
WiFi routers come with the ability to password protect the signal.. While most have a default password some people don't think they need to change it. You do! Changing the password should not be put off especially when it only takes a few minutes. Changing the password will help keep people from stealing things like your identity from you. Just look in the User Manual for directions on how to change the password.
Always use a strong password. Using "password" for a password is never a good idea!
