Keeping your Wi-Fi secure over the holidays
The holidays are prime time for visits from family and friends and sharing Wi-Fi passwords, but think twice before handing over your password. Setting up alternative access points, such as guest networks or passwords, help keep your network secure and your information safe.
Every device connected to your Wi-Fi, from cell phones to computers, is a potential gateway to your information. Hackers can use them to spread malware and establish unauthorized access to your network from a remote location, giving them access to passwords, bank records and other personal information you want to protect.
Setting up alternative access points for your guests helps prevent these security risks. It severs the direct connection between their device and yours while giving them access to your Wi-Fi. It does not limit what they can do online. It’s just adding cybersecurity to provide you with peace of mind during the chaos of the holiday season.
The best part? It doesn’t take a technical guru to set up a guest network. OEC Fiber makes it as easy as a tap on a screen. Our app walks you through the process in a few simple steps and gives you the power to turn your guest access on and off whenever you want.

A holiday gathering filling a home with loved ones is a beautiful sight. Keeping your Wi-Fi secure is equally as magical. Set up a guest network or password this holiday season to keep your season bright and your network secure, so the only thing you have to worry about is what to put on your holiday menu.
