As companies enact aggressive work-from-home measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 among their employees, Inseego Corp. provides the following information to help remote workers stay secure.

  • Wi-Fi access points are usually configured by default to broadcast the name of your wireless network -- known as the service set identifier, or SSID. Changing your settings to "hide" your SSID will help you avoid attracting the attention of opportunistic hackers.
  • Use some variant of WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) -- either WPA or the newer WPA2 standard.
  • Make sure that any password (or passphrase) that protects your Wi-Fi network is long and random so it can't be cracked by a determined hacker. Do not settle for the default settings.
  • Establish a guest network for other users in your household, allowing them to connect to the internet without getting access to your company's network.
