Technicians need to familiarize themselves with strategies, features, and techniques that can help ensure a safe and secure small office/home office (SOHO) environment. In this course, discover home router security settings to configure on a SOHO network. Explore wireless security considerations, including changing the service set identifier (SSID), disabling SSID broadcast and encryption settings, disabling guest access, and changing channels. Next, discover firewall security features such as disabling unused ports and port forwarding or mapping. You'll also learn to install and configure browsers and relevant security settings. Next you'll explore browser installations, extensions, and plug-ins, as well as password managers and certificates. Lastly, explore Internet browsing security features and techniques, including pop-up blockers, clearing browsing data, clearing cache, private-browsing mode, sign-in/browser data synchronization, and ad blockers. Once you have completed this course, you'll be able to configure security settings for browsers and SOHO networks. This course is part of a series that will help you prepare for the CompTIA A+ Core 2 (220-1102) certification exam.
