8. The secret for a better Wi-Fi
One of the first things we do when moving to a new place – some of us even do it before decorating – is setting up the Wi-Fi. Hooking up those wireless internet routers seems easy enough, and most of us do it by ourselves, but there’s one thing we aren’t aware of: it’s always advised to change the default settings of the router.
There’s more to it than most of us know: leaving the default settings on the router, rather than personalizing it, leaves it open for anyone using the same router, making it significantly easier for hackers and viruses to invade our network. What you need to do when setting a new router is reset the original password and create a new one.
