A WiFi router allows us to connect multiple devices to home or office network connection. When we purchase a router device, we should have to customize the WiFi network name (SSID) and user access password. Because changing the WiFi router SSID name and client password help to identify our personal or private WiFi network, as well as it also helps to avoid unauthorized access to your limited internet data.
