Safeguard your Wi-Fi environment
Sharing your Internet access and data through networking is made even easier through Wi-Fi. However, with Wi-Fi, your information is travelling through the airwaves and not through physical cables. This makes it easy for anyone within range to “listen in” and hijack your network, compromising your personal data and privacy. Read on and see how you can protect your network with these easy yet crucial measures for better Wi-Fi security.

|A STRONG password is key to better security.|
|Note :||Do not share your Wi-Fi password with strangers. Alternatively, change your password after sharing it with friends in public locations.|
|Strategic router/access point positioning Wi-Fi signal leakage is possible when the router/access point is positioned at accessible places such as windows. To curb this, place it at the center of the house or somewhere where you can enjoy a good signal and keep out unwanted users.|
|Network closure Turn off your Wi-Fi devices during extended periods of inactivity to secure your Wi-Fi connection. Doing so will not only save you money on your electricity bills but more importantly, this give less time for hackers to hack into your network.|
|Firmware upgrade Upgrade the firmware on your Wi-Fi devices to the latest version. In similar fashion, this works pretty much like an antivirus - once a hacker figures out how to exploit the security flaws on your device it is rendered useless as your new firmware is equipped with better security functions.|
