Already have internet at home? Congratulations! You have taken a huge step towards being connected to the world. I’m sure many of us would love to change our Wifi password for security reasons or so that we don’t have to bend down to see what the password was. You are going to take a big step, for security reasons it is advisable to change the Wi-Fi password, in order to make it difficult for all those who want to corrupt your network. Below we tell you how to do it. 

Steps to change the wifi password step by step

To change the Wifi password, we must access the router’s configuration through the browser, go to the settings to change the password, and change it to the one we want. These are the exact steps to follow:

  1. In the bar of your web browser, enter the address and enter.
  2. Enter your access data (username and password).
  3. Enter your access data (username and password).
  4. Change the password to the one you want, and save it.

1. Log in to the router

The address to access your Wifi router will be We must enter it in our browser (mobile or pc) and when we do so we will find a login. We will now need to include our login details.

2. Enter access data

Before we have made any changes to our router access data, it will be the default. You will find all these user and password details on the back of the router. If you can’t find them there, they will come in a box or sticker attached.

Once we have located these data, log in with your username and password.

No debemos intentar entrar varias veces si no sabemos las claves, ya que podemos bloquear el acceso. We should not try to log in several times if we do not know the passwords, as we may block access. The best thing to do in this case is to contact the company to find out the username and password.

3. Go to the Wifi settings

Once inside the router, we will be able to see several devices. The names of these will vary depending on the user model, so it will be up to us to investigate the different devices.

One clue is that the settings are usually found in sections such as “Wifi Network”, “Wifi Settings” or “Security”. From this section we can also change the name of the Wifi.

4. Change the password

Having located the password section, we must now choose a password to make it as secure as possible. We recommend one that is a mixture of numbers, letters and symbols. As well as a mixture of upper and lower case. Aiming to make it more difficult to hack.

There are sites that generate passwords automatically. You can use them if you are not too inspired: Lastpass.

Reasons to change your password

We agree with you that it can be a bit lazy or difficult to change the password of your network. But if you can’t make up your mind, here are some reasons why you should.a

1. Default key: not very secure

The default password of our home network is insecure. There are many applications to get your neighbours into your network. From Google Pay apps to tutorials on how to steal your neighbour’s Wifi. In addition, if the person trying to access your Wifi knows your operator and the name of your network, it is easier to gain access.

2. Impossible to remember key

The default password is often very long, with combinations of lowercase and uppercase letters that are impossible to learn. If you have a lot of visitors at home or every time you change devices you have to go to the router to check what the password was, changing it to an easier-to-remember password is a good thing.

By changing the password you will forget about these problems and you will also gain in security.

3. You don't know your wifi

This will not happen if you live in a house far away from your neighbours, but it is very common in a block of flats. Routers, by default, come with the name of the operator and a series of numbers.

When we want to connect to the network we don’t know very well which is our Wifi without looking at the router until we get used to it, but when visitors come we will have to clarify which is our network.

Make it easier for your visitors to find your network and you will also avoid those neighbours who want to access your Wifi with a misleading name. Always avoid personal references.
