This Month's FAQ – How Can I Keep Neighbors From Using My Home Wi-Fi?

Question: I suspect my neighbors are using my Wi-Fi. How can I prevent this?

Keep Neighbors From Using My Wi-Fi Answer: You're right to take precautions, as higher data charges, slow speeds, and hacking can result from unauthorized persons using your Wi-Fi (this is known as "piggybacking"). There are many steps you can take to prevent it from happening. Here are two of the most effective:
  1. Create a password. Go into the admin dashboard for your router and find the default password. Change it to something difficult to guess. The best passwords are long, random combinations of letters and numbers.

  2. Encrypt wireless signals. This task also involves getting into your router dashboard. Once you're there, change your security mode to WPA2 or WPA.

When your Wi-Fi is unprotected, any information you have entered online is unsafe including bank/personal information. You are also liable for the activity that takes place on your Wi-Fi connection so if someone is "piggybacking" on your network and doing something such as downloading songs or movies illegally, you can be held responsible for that.
