Changing the Wi-Fi password is pretty simple, and it only takes a few minutes to do so. There are some specific steps, so a guide may be helpful if you don’t know how to start. Read on below and we’ll guide you on how to change the password to your Globe At Home Prepaid Wi-Fi, and stop any strangers from connecting to your Wi-Fi once and for all.

Wi-Fi password vs. Modem password

First things first, we need to clarify the difference between the Wi-Fi password and the modem password because many people get confused. The Wi-Fi password is what you use to connect to the Wi-Fi and access the internet.

In the beginning, you will be given a unique default Wi-Fi password that you can use. This can be found at the bottom of your modem listed as “Wi-Fi Key” or “Wi-Fi Password”. You will then need to change it if you want a new, personalized password.

On the other hand, the modem password, or admin password, is what you use to log in to the Globe At Home dashboard. A default modem password can be found at the bottom of the modem listed as “Password”.

If you have accessed the dashboard already, you may have already been prompted to change your modem password. This is because the default details are the same for each modem.

In this article, we’ll focus on changing the Wi-Fi password to your Globe at Home Prepaid connection.

Why should you change your Globe At Home Wi-Fi password?

When you buy a new Globe at Home Prepaid Wi-Fi, you will already be assigned a default Wi-Fi password located at the bottom of your modem. This will be listed as Wi-Fi Key or Wi-Fi Password. This pre-defined password is already safe because it is unique to your Wi-Fi, so strangers will not be able to access your Wi-Fi unless they look at the bottom of your modem and see the password.

Still, changing your Wi-Fi password is recommended to strengthen the security of your connection. This makes sure that only those you share the password to will be able to connect to your Wi-Fi. Having a personal password is also more convenient so you won’t have to always look at the bottom of the modem if you forget the pre-defined password.

Changing the password to your Globe At Home Prepaid Wi-Fi is a piece of cake. Now you can prevent any strangers you don’t trust from using your Wi-Fi without your permission.
