Many of us have a tough time managing security on our home network devices from a web page on our desktop or laptop computers. If youâ€™re on a road trip and your loved ones for some reason asked you to monitor or manage their home devices remotely, youâ€™d probably respond, â€œFuggedaboutit!â€�
Now you can nod and say, â€œSure.â€�
Thereâ€™s actually quite a bit that goes on inside that network router sitting in your home. But as PC World observes, itâ€™s the â€œdevice that everyone forgetsâ€� even though it has passwords to set, firmware to update, and a bunch of IP addresses to manage for every device that uses it as a gateway to the internet. But when it comes to managing the security of each of those connected devices, itâ€™s pretty useless.
