Why log into a motorola router?
Frankly, the majority of people out there never need to get into their router’s admin areas. But why would you want to log in? Well, we have already noted that you could be looking to make changes to the name of your connection. In this regard, it’s better to have something anonymous, like MyWiFi. That way, nosy neighbors won’t know who the connection belongs to and they won’t try to hack in.
It’s also probable that you are on your way to changing the password for your connection. This is a lot more serious than changing the name. When you log into your Motorola router, you need to take care to maintain security. Make sure that the password that you select for your WiFi is secure. It should be at least 10 characters long and should include letters, numbers and symbols.
