With the invention of so many hacking tools and a thousand tutorials that can make a novice hack your devices, Security of wifi's have been put to risk. Its necessary guyz to know how to make your wifi secure.

1. Change Your Security Level To WPA/WPA2
  • My wifi still detects many connections with WEP. It is an outdated method and can be easily hacked using backtrack penetration tools.
  • WPA/WPA2 is very difficult to crack. Hacking WPA/WPA2 is based on dictionary attack method. Hackers will have no luck if you have a strong password.
2. Choose A Strong Password
  • Choose a strong password. 12345678 wont do.
  • Mix up capital and strong letters. It makes dictionary attack even more worthless.
  • Mix up special characters in between.
  • A long password is more difficult to crack.
  • Avoid words that can be found in a dictionary. 
3. Check who is connected to your wifi
  • DHCP client list on your router interface should tell you that. Just type in your common gateway address in your browser bar, login to your router and find out.
