Setting up the Printer wirelessly is quite easy and quick. But, there are some safety recommendations you must follow before you proceed to set up the Printer. There is a high possibility for loss of data, virus threats and printing problems if you do not follow these safety rules. Stick to the measures listed below:
Maintain and use a secure network connection. You can maintain the security of the network by protecting it using a strong password. Also, remember to change the password periodically.
To avoid any security issues, make sure that you connect your device to the router or wireless device that supports a protection firewall. The ISP is responsible for protecting your connection using a high protective firewall.
Always prefer to set your passwords instead of using the default ones. Default passwords are easy to crack and can cause loss of data and information.
