Create a Strong Password

  2. Upper case or lower case. Another trick is, even with simple words, alternating small and capital letters make it complicated.
  3. Add numbers. For a period of time, numbers were used to decrypt a message. For example, 3 is equal to letter E and 4 is equal to letter A.
  4. Add characters. A piece of advice, you can add a character but make sure you remember it.
  5. Sentences. Maybe you’re wondering how could a sentence fit in your password. It’s possible and you can do it by taking the initials of every word in a sentence. For example, the sentence ” You can do it!!, said the 75-year-old man.”. Turning that sentence to: yCdt!!sT75yOm.

  1. The TP-Link’s security system is a nice idea, but unfortunately, it’s not implemented yet, because of the limitations of the hardware. I think that it can prevent people from building their networks using TP-Links.

  2. If you have a TP-Link router in a box or a laptop it should be obvious that the device is on the router with the router itself. The router itself is only partially authenticated. The TL-WRT router can also provide a password to an attacker on the router so that they don’t need to authenticate.
