Wireless Internet Connection Keep It Secure

Wireless Internet Connection Keep It Secure

With all of the wireless devices we carry these days, a home network system has become part of most homes. However, if your wireless network isn’t protected, anyone could get onto it. The connection would run slower, and if "network-jumpers" are downloading huge files or playing online games, the bills could get hefty. Worse still, an open network could be used by drive-by spammers or identity thieves.

Here are a few easy adjustments to increase network security:

• Turn off the router feature that broadcasts the network name (often called the SSID).

• Add Password or “secure key” Protection that is a feature included with every wireless device today.

• Only allow specific computers to sign on through the use of MAC addressing, which is a feature for both PC's and Apple Computers.

Also, be aware of the network you're connecting to when you're on the go. Free or Public Networks may not be locked down. That means someone could get into your device and access your private, sensitive information.
