Airtel (Bharti Airtel) is a multinational company from India, which provides telecommunications services.

In this article, you will get a detailed explanation of how to change the Airtel Wi-Fi password.
In order to change your W-Fi password, you need to know the basic information about your router. Here we primarily mean data such as the name of the wi-fi network you use, passwords for the router and wi-fi, as well as your router’s default IP address.
In most cases, you will find all this on the sticker on the back of the router. If by any chance, the router itself does not contain data, there is another, also easy way to get to its IP address. Open the Command Prompt, type ipconfig, and confirm by pressing Enter. Scroll down and the numbers you’ll see below “Default Gateways” actually represent the router’s IP address.”
Reset Your Airtel Wi-Fi Device
It’s not uncommon for people to forget new username and password after changing the router’s default credentials. If such a situation has happened to you, it is useful to know that there is a very simple way to reset the router.
At the very beginning, it is necessary to turn on the modem and wait a few moments, until you notice that the lights have stabilized. After that, press the button used for the reset with the tip of the pen (you can also use the tip of the needle for this) and hold it for up to 30 seconds (10-15 sec will usually do the job). The light, which represents the power of the modem, will turn off, and after a few moments it will turn on again.
After these few steps, your router will be reset to factory settings, and you can use the default username and password again.

We hope our tutorial helped you change Airtel Wi-Fi password. Before you leave, here’s our last advice – changing your wi-fi password periodically is quite important. The right time to change it is when you feel that your internet connection is weaker and slower than usual.
This could happen because someone else came up with the password and now uses your internet. These are most often neighbors, but there is another, much bigger danger – hackers. For hackers, the goal is not to “steal your internet” but to get to your personal data (like bank accounts).

For these, as well as many other reasons, we advise you to avoid passwords that consist of a name or a year of birth because they are the easiest to guess, and we can compare them to a situation where you leave a house key under a rug or in a pot. Instead, you need to set a “strong password” that contains a combination of characters (numbers, letters, uppercase, lowercase). Those passwords are much harder to crack, so your network will be more secure.

My favorite free-time activities are gaming, movie-watching, and cooking. I also enjoy fishing, although I’m not good at it. What I’m good at is annoying David when we are fishing together. Apparently, you’re not supposed to talk or laugh while fishing – it scares the fishes.
