The use of Wi-Fi networks in any operating system today has become one of the most common ways to connect to the Internet and from there carry out our personal, educational and work tasks, when we manage the Wi-Fi network. There are certain security criteria that we must take into account and one of the simplest but at the same time most practical is changing the Wi-Fi network password. The ideal is to have the Windows password hidden but many times we need to change it for security..
If you share your equipment, it is recommended that you change your password from time to time or simply change it for security reasons, especially if you still have the password that the router provided when you started. This can be done basically for security or simply because on a personal level you want to update to a more secure or modern password, making this change is simple and TechnoWikis will explain how to achieve it.
