Wireless home network security

Security is a top priority for Verizon, and it should be a strong consideration of everyone who has a wireless home network. Consequences of not protecting your network can range from neighbors enjoying free Internet access at your expense to identity theft.

How can I help protect my wireless home network?

  1. Protect your network from viruses and spyware
  2. Change your router password if you're still using the factory default setting
  3. Use the strongest network security encryption compatible with your network devices
  4. Use firewall software to protect your computer
  5. Position the router or gateway to limit your exposure
  6. Turn off your wireless network if you are going to be gone for extended periods of time
