Most methods given in this article to "secure your network" are misleading and/or not the right method for a novice user. Hiding the SSID hides it from the network list but doesn't completely deter hackers who are specifically targeting your network. DO NOT USE WPA use the more secure WPA3 or if your AP doesn't support it use WPA2 if you can't use either, upgrade. Make a separate network for guests is a good idea. Use a reputable VPN. Change the default password for admin access (password for the page of your router usually 192.168.0.1).

Consult websites that give you pointers on how to choose a password. Be Safe, Browse Smart
