For optimum protection of your Wi-Fi connection, make sure to use a strong, secure password. Opt for a password that combines upper and lowercase letters, numbers and special characters. The recommended minimum password length is 13 characters and the recommended maximum password length is 63 characters. Depending on the type of device and/or platform being used, it may not be possible to use all the characters and the number of characters may be limited.
