Check Your Router and Make Sure It’s Hacker-free
You’re doing everything right – using good security software, a strong Wi-Fi network password so you’re safe, right. Well– most likely.
Hackers are nothing if not innovative and they can break into a router using what’s known as DNS-hijacking. And if your router is compromised, so are all the devices connected by it. And let’s be honest – the chances that your router has been compromised are quite slim. But, since it takes only a few seconds to make sure, we’re going to provide you with a link to a website where you can check your router to be sure it hasn’t been hijacked.
Before we do that, again we want to make sure you understand that it is very unlikely your router has been compromised – our motto is always to present things in an honest, non-scary way. We don’t like tech sites that scare people to get viewers/readers.
So, take a few seconds to make sure your router is clean and uncompromised; we’re pretty sure you’ll find that is.
Above are my results. You will notice that my ISP and DNS say “Google”.. I use Spectrum as my ISP but you’d never know it. That’s because I use Google’s Public DNS servers.
