Why Should I Change My Network Name and Password?

Setting your own network name and password helps protect your home network from outside users, viruses and other threats. If you leave your wireless network unprotected, other people can use your Internet connection, access files on your computers, and even find out private information like passwords and credit card numbers.

Change Your WiFi Network Name and Password

Connect your laptop, phone, or tablet directly to your Gateway with hard-wired/Ethernet cable or connect wirelessly to your in-home WiFi network (not the “xfinitywifi” network).
