What Happens After Changing the Wi-Fi Password?

Every device connected to your Wi-Fi network will automatically sign out and lose access to the internet if you chance your router’s Wi-Fi password. To sign back into your Wi-Fi network, you just need to use the new password.

When Should You Change the Wi-Fi Password of Your Router?

There is no right or wrong time to change the Wi-Fi password of your router. At Tonycomm Group LTD, we recommend that you update your password every 6 to 12 months as a standard security measure. Also, it makes more sense to update your passwords occasionally or immediately upon noticing a new user on your network.  

How Does a New Device Sign Into My Wi-Fi Network?

Most unwanted users gain access to your network using Wi-Fi password hacking apps, unauthorized sharing of passwords, or even tethering to your Wi-Fi network from devices you allowed to login to your Wi-Fi network.

By updating your Wi-Fi password from time to time, you’ll stay ahead of potential security threats, and keep your network safe and secure from possible intrusion.
