Etisalat-branded Wi-Fi routers can be found in homes and commercial buildings across the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and other countries in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa.

If you rely on an Etisalat router for wirelessly connecting to the internet, then it’s a good idea to change the default Wi-Fi password. You should also change it if you suspect that someone you don’t trust might have it or as a way how to quickly and easily disconnect all connected devices.

Regardless of what your reasons for wanting to change your Etisalat Wi-Fi password are, all you need to do is follow the steps below.

Prerequisites

To successfully change your Etisalat Wi-Fi password, you need to meet the following prerequisites:

  • The computer you’ll use to change the password must be connected to your Etisalat router using an Ethernet cable.
  • You need to know the router’s IP address and the admin username and password. This information should be printed on a sticker located somewhere on the router itself.

Steps For Changing Your Etisalat Wi-Fi Password

  1. Open a web browser on the computer that’s connected to your Etisalat router using an Ethernet cable.
  2. Type the following IP address in the URL bar and hit “Enter” on your keyboard: 192.168.1.1
  3. Log in with the admin username and password (the default admin/admin combination usually works).
  4. Click the “Advanced” button to see all available settings.
  5. Select the “Wireless” category from the left pane.
  6. Go to “wlan2” (2.4GHz) and then “Security”.
  7. Use the “Pre-Shared Key” (PSK) field to change your Wi-Fi password.
  8. Click “Apply Changes” to restart your wireless network and force all connected devices to reconnect using the new password.

Make sure the new password is at least 8 characters long and sufficiently complex. Ideally, you want it to include lowercase and uppercase characters, numbers, and special symbols. If you find random passwords difficult to remember, then you can also use a very long passphrase consisting of multiple randomly selected words, or a password manager to help you remember it in the future.

Should anything go wrong as a result of the password change, you can restart your Etisalat router to its factory settings by pressing and holding the physical reset button for 10-15 seconds (until the router’s LED indicator lights start flashing).

Alternatively, you can get in touch with Etisalat directly via phone and have their customer support agents help guide you through the process of changing your password.

how to make your twitter account and tweets private

Although influencers, celebrities, and businesses use their Twitter profiles to promote products, services, or even themselves, the popular social media platform is still built around a base of everyday users sharing the news and opinions they care about most.

If you’ve built a Twitter account with a follower list of close friends and family, you may be happy simply interacting with people you know, and uncomfortable with the idea of strangers being able to see your Tweets. In that case, you’re in luck, because it’s relatively simple to make your Twitter account completely private so that only your list of followers will be able to see what you’ve posted and who you’ve interacted with.

In addition to making your account private to non-followers, you’ll gain an extra layer of security, as you’ll also be able to manually approve which followers can see your posts. Here’s how to change the settings to make your Twitter account private:

Desktop

  • Go to the Twitter website.
  • In the left tab, click More, then Settings and Privacy in the pop-up menu.
  • Click the Privacy and Safety tab, followed by Audience and Tagging.
  • Check the box next to Protect your Tweets.
  • Click Protect to confirm your selection.

In the Privacy and Safety tab, you can find additional settings such as Discoverability, as well as manage who can send you direct messages, and more.

Mobile

  • Open the Twitter app.
  • Tap the Settings menu in the top-right corner (gearwheel icon).
  • Tap the back arrow to see the full settings menu.
  • Tap Privacy and Safety and next, Audience and Tagging.
  • Tap the slider to the right of Protect your Tweets, which will turn green.
  • Finally, tap Done.

It’s worth pointing out that you may have to toggle a different tab in order to view the settings icon in the top right of the screen.
