WEP, WPA and WPA2 are different wireless cryptographic protocols used to protect wireless network information. If you don't know the difference between them, you may not know which protocol to choose. The following are the history and comparison of these protocols. After reading this article, you should know which one to choose. WEP WPA WPA2 These wireless encryption protocols are created by the Wi-Fi alliance. It is an association of more than 300 companies in the wireless network industry. The first protocol created by the Wi-Fi alliance was the Wired Equivalent Privacy(WEP), which was introduced in the late 1990s. However, WEP has serious security flaws. It has been replaced by WPA (Wi-Fi protection access). Although it is easy to be attacked by hackers, WEP connection is still widely used. There are still many routers using WEP. The reason is that they have not changed the default security on their wireless access points / routers. Some routers are old, and they can not use WPA or higher security. As WPA takes the place of WEP, WPA2 has replaced WPA as the latest security protocol. WPA2 implements the latest security standards, including "government level" data encryption. Since 2006, all Wi-Fi certified products must use WPA2 security. Use WEP/WPA/WPA2 on wireless access point or router When setting up a router, you are allowed to choose the security protocol you want to use. Of course, this is a good thing, but some people do not want to change it. By default, the router may be set to WEP, and now we know it is not safe.…

There is no perfect password. Hackers can crack any password if they have enough time and the right "dictionary" or "violence tool". So, you must create a password that can prevent hackers. Complex passwords need three conditions It is neither a proper noun nor a word in a dictionary. It must be complex enough to resist repeated attacks. You can still remember it. Use the first letter of a sentence You can increase the complexity by increasing the password length. A good password length is at least 8 characters. Once the password reaches 15 characters, it will effectively resist hackers and its dictionary programs. You can use the first letter of a basic sentence or phrase to make a password. As long as the password is not a word, it will resist the hacker's violent attack. For example: Can't See the Forest Through the Trees: cstfttt. Lengthen the Phrase If your password has 15 characters, it will become very strong. Extend the password by adding special characters. You can add a website name or a phone, for example: cstfttt-gmailcom. Add special characters and uppercase letters Password strength increases dramatically when you add special letters or uppercase letters to your password. For example: [email protected] Periodically altering or changing passwords At work, you'd better change your password every few days. At home, you should rotate passwords to ensure good computer security. You use different passwords on different websites and rotate some of them every few weeks to help yourself. Rotating some passwords instead of the entire password will help prevent hackers from stealing your phrases.…
