Tip of the Week:

Hackers May Know the Default Settings for Routers. Always Change the Username and Password for New Routers.

When you get a new wi-fi router, you should follow the manufacturer's directions to change the username and password. Make sure the password is long, difficult to guess and not related to the network name.
