Don't add any personal information, though such as your name or address, so while they are within range, other individuals will see this network name.
- Enter a new password for WiFi then. Under the Security Setting section, you will find this field. By default, you have a personal WPA2 protection configuration, and Spectrum recommends that you stay that way. Check out our article on which router security option you can use if you would like to use a different security setting.
