Your router is accessible from the Internet!

Configuration of your wireless router is accessible from the Internet, and can be hacked. Your personal data may be at risk.

To configure a wireless router:

  1. From the Wi-Fi Inspector results screen, select Go to your router settings to open the administration page of your router.
  2. Enter your router username and password, or contact the party who provided the router (e.g., your ISP).
  3. Find the Administration section (might be also entitled as Admin, or Setup, or Tools, etc.).
  4. Find and Disable the Remote management service (may be listed as Remote access, or Remote control, etc.).
  5. Confirm your changes (select Save settings, Update, OK, etc.) and reboot your router if necessary.


Due to the wide range of different router types, we can offer vendor-specific instructions for frequently used routers or general instructions for all other routers. Please consult documentation for your router model for exact instructions, or contact your router's manufacturer for further assistance.
