Your Wi-Fi password guards your wireless network against snoopers and drive-by hackers. It needs to be complex and difficult to guess yet still simple enough to remember and use.
Maybe your current Wi-Fi password doesn’t cut it, but you’re not quite sure how or where to change it. No problem. The actual steps vary depending on your router brand and model, but the basic process is the same.
There’s only one real downside with changing your Wi-Fi password. After you reset the password, you have to log back into your network from every wireless device in your home. That lineup includes not just your PCs and mobile devices but also your smart TV, Blu-ray player, streaming media players, and any other smart devices. Whew, that’s a fair amount of work. But if the move improves and enhances your Wi-Fi security, the results should be worth the effort.
