TP-Link, founded in 1996, is a global manufacturer of dependable networking devices and accessories, with a presence in all parts of daily life. TP-Link has developed a portfolio of devices that satisfy the networking needs of all individuals. This is based on a proven tradition of reliability, performance, and value. As the connected lifestyle evolves, the organization is growing today to meet the demands of tomorrow.
It all depends on the product in question. However, all TP-Link products enable PCs, game consoles, and mobile devices to communicate with one another. It allows them to share resources such as a printer and an Internet connection.
TP-Link makes routers, access points, switches, network cards, and powerline adapters, among other things. All of these things have one thing in common: they all build or extend computer networks, whether wired or wireless.
Routers are the most versatile equipment sold by TP-Link. They connect to your modem and generate a wireless network, as well as a firewall and ports for wired devices. They also distribute your Internet connection to everyone who knows how to connect. After all, the primary purpose of PCs and mobile devices is to share an Internet connection.
A default password is a device's original pre-configured passcode. Many devices have such default credentials, and they pose a security risk if left unchanged. Admin, 1234, and guest are a few examples of such passcodes. These can be guessed easily: via search or with the help of websites that gather lists.
When your internet provider first sets up your Wi-Fi, they usually offer you a pin and ask you to memorize it. This passcode grants you access to the internet. The Wi-Fi is transmitted to your devices via your home's wireless router.
There is another passcode you should be concerned about. It is a router password. Failing to change it might put you and your computer at risk. The router passcode is used to gain access to important router settings. Keep in mind that it only takes a few guesses to figure out what the default password is.
Fortunately, the default passcode, and the methods for accessing the router settings, are outlined in the user manual for the gadget, making it easier to reset it.
The list of things that can go wrong due to an unaltered router password is vast. The most commonly used is gaining unauthorized access to your Wi-Fi network and using it for free.
But there is a much worse scenario. A malicious hacker, for example, may easily alter your router password and effectively lock you out of your network. You may need to manually reset the router or contact your internet service provider to restore the standard settings. To avoid all this, change your default passcode as a first step and store it in a secure password manager, like a Passwarden.
Passwarden is considered one of the best password managers thanks to the following features:
When it comes to sensitive information like passcodes or credit card details, security is crucial. Passwarden uses client-side data encryption using the AES-256 and p-384 protocols to achieve this. These techniques make your personal information inaccessible to any third parties, including KeepSolid personnel.
The Security Dashboard alerts you to data breaches and other security risks involving objects saved in Passwarden. The reasons of breaches include: weak, vulnerable, and overused passcodes, security issues on sites where you have accounts, expiring dates of your sensitive data. In all these cases, you will get a notification to update your credentials using our app. Make sure to enable Dark Web Monitor to get a detailed password strength test.
If you are demanded to disclose your personal information, use Duress password instead of Master password. It will only show the data you've defined previously, with all other information hidden. Make sure you set up the Duress mode in a correct way.
Enable two-factor authentication to add an extra layer of security to your Passwarden account. We'll send a one-time passcode (OTP) to the email address you provide, ensuring that no one else has access to your data storage.
