Our Wi-Fi connections are really important to us. And we will go to any lengths to ensure that it's security level is increased to the highest. In our efforts to restrict access, we put in the strongest password we can conjure up.
But there are simpler ways to restrict access to outsiders, like hiding your router from others. You can do that with just steps.
What is SSID?
The Service Set Identifier is the router's name that appears when you search for available Wi-Fi connections. Every Wi-Fi has a unique ID, and it is always possible to edit and hide them.
To begin with, you will need to login to your router settings by heading to your router's IP address (which may be common to 192.168.0.1) with your admin credentials.
Within the various settings available, our primary need is to change the Wireless network settings.
Under the wireless network settings, you need to uncheck the SSID broadcast option.
Once done, you need to save your settings. The important thing to keep in mind is that you keep your SSID simple and easy for you to remember. Once hidden, you can manually connect to the Wi-Fi by searching for it from another device.
