    Choosing a secure password

A simple password is easy to guess and hit and trial method can lead to the unauthorized access to your shared data connection. However, by following the below guidelines one can choose a secure password for their hotspot.

  1. Always use the alphanumeric password.
  2. Avoid using easy to guess passwords like your pets name, birth date, house number, bike/cars number, your phone number, etc.
