How to protect your TP-Link network devices from potential attacks?

In order to make TP-Link devices safer, we advise that customers go through the following steps and check the settings on their own devices to ensure that their networks are not vulnerable to attack.

 

1. Make sure that an anti-virus software is installed on your computer. If available, please enable the web brower’s anti-phishing function to avoid malicious websites or links. 

 

2. If you are using a wireless router, change the default wireless password to make sure an unauthorized user cannot connect to your network.
