How often do you reset your wifi password?

From a security perspective how often do you reset your wifi passwords?  What is your process?

Every 20 years, without fail..... (maybe.  I'll know in 2025)

It is over 20 characters long.  If someone guesses it, they are welcome to use my internet connection.

I love my Orbi.

Re: How often do you reset your wifi password?

I'm the same. I set a password about a decade ago and haven't changed it. But I also watch my attached device list. If someone happens to pop on it, i'll change it. But otherwise it makes upgrading routers super easy. 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80

Re: How often do you reset your wifi password?

When you stated "watch my attached device list" are you referring to the Orbi app or are you using a different software for that?

Hello thunynhj,

 

Welcome to the NETGEAR Community!

 

@plemans is referring to the "Device manager' that can be found within the Orbi app. 

 

To see this information tap Device manager when you open your Orbi app. 

 

For more information about the device manager please navigate to the link below:
