    • Not able to grasp the steps to changing WiFi password?
    • We have made a list of the best tips and tricks that will help you in changing or resetting your WiFi network to ensure that you connect in the future seamlessly.

    A WiFi network lets us connect to the devices to the net without the requirement for ethernet cables. But to keep our net secure, we do need a WiFi password and to change our WiFi password is also a necessary step to be taken to ensure that our network security remains intact.

    If there is no WiFi password, any person/entity can connect to your WiFi connection. This will lead to hoarders sucking your internet speed, and the worst possible thing that can happen is they can manipulate your connected devices to install viruses and swipe off sensitive data.

    In order to prevent all of these problems, one should change their WiFi router’s default password to ensure that their internet connection is really secure.

    In this article, we will give you tips and tricks on how to change your WiFi password and adjust your WiFi router’s configuration.
