Although the easiest thing to do when buying a router is to leave it without a passcode, this could bring you serious risks.

Having Internet with Wifi is very important, because with it we access the bank, our email, we do online work, we have contacts of family and friends, etc. It is better to protect your home’s Wireless, to avoid being hacked, that’s possible.

If the Wi-Fi belongs to a company, the care must be much greater. It is very common for someone to be hacked for not protecting their Wi-Fi network and, as a result, important information could be lost or personal information could simply come to light.

If you do not have a security system, the data on all your devices (computer, tablet, mobile, etc.) are vulnerable to hackers.
