We have Wi-Fi networks almost everywhere, such as in our homes, workplaces, and other places. Some Wi-Fi networks are for public usage and can provide data service to numerous users. On the other hand, some private Wi-Fi networks have limited access since they have password protection. This is why we can not connect to a secure network without authentication. Hence it is necessary to secure them by changing their passwords regularly.
So in this article, we will get to know all about changing Wi-Fi Passwords and Names.
