If WPA2 or WPA encryption is more secure, why did Verizon ship its routers with WEP encryption enabled? Security has always been a top priority for Verizon.  Several years ago it became apparent that many Verizon customers weren’t setting up any security when they installed their home networks, so Verizon decided to ship routers with WEP encryption turned on by default.  WEP is a basic security setting that is compatible with wireless network devices that were manufactured prior to 2006.
 
Verizon currently ships all its wireless routers with pre-configured WPA2 security encryption.  WPA2 encryption provides the highest level of network security available today, and has been required on all Wi-Fi devices since 2006. 
 
Using the strongest security setting will go a long way to protect your network and secure your information against unauthorized access.
