Encrypt Your Wi-Fi

PSMail Quick Tip: Be sure to encrypt your Wi-Fi. When you install a wireless network, it’s tempting to keep the vendor’s default network name and leave the network unencrypted. But doing so is an open invitation to your neighbors and anyone else within range to help themselves to your Internet connection.

Open your network’s configuration program to rename your network and apply Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) encryption. Check the maker’s website regularly for driver and security updates.
