Tips to Secure Your Home Network

Family Devices.jpgWhether you know it or not, securing your home network does more than just keep unwanted users from using your WiFi. It keeps them at bay from accessing personal data and information, as well as protects your home and its devices for cyber threats, such as ransomware, malware, botnets and more.


Being proactive and taking preventative action early can go a long way in keeping your home network protected for a safe and secure internet your family can use. Here are a few tips that you can start practicing:


NETGEAR ArmorArmor provides advanced cyber threat protection for all your devices, inside and outside of your home network, essentially giving around-the-clock protection. By actively detecting and protecting your devices from cyber threats, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your network is safe. In addition, you’ll receive instant notification to warn you whenever someone visits websites that may try to scam, infect, or steal your personal info.

Change Your Router’s Password – Sounds simple and a no-brainer, but believe it or not, some don’t. A good rule of thumb is to have a password that is at least 12 characters long and use a combination of letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, & special characters. Even better, think outside of the box and use phrases that are easy to remember and have meaning. 


Updating Firmware – Updates to your router firmware, device operating system, security software, web browser, and apps become available to fix bugs and security. It’s wise to always make sure you are on the latest version as it’s the best defense against viruses, malware, and other online threats.


What are some measure you take when it comes to securing your home network? We’d love to hear them!
