There are a few reasons you might want to update or reset your WiFi password: making your network more secure, and making your password easier to remember and type.
Improved network security
You can add an extra layer of security to your network by changing the WiFi password. As long as your new password is secure, a regular update will help protect your wireless network. It can help to use security parameters (or rules) when creating a new password. Here's a common guideline for password security.
A secure password...
- is not a dictionary word
- contains uppercase letters
- contains lowercase letters
- contains numbers
- contains special characters.
Easier to remember
Now, a password that is easy to remember is necessary less secure. But if you're not too concerned about network security, it can be helpful to choose a password that you'll remember and that's easy to type. This way you won't have to struggle every time you connect a new device to the network, and it will be easier for your guests to connect.
