SSID stands for Service Set Identifier, which is a unique name that identifies a wireless network. When you connect to a Wi-Fi network, you are prompted to enter the SSID to access the network. The SSID helps to differentiate one wireless network from another in areas where multiple networks are present.

Importance of SSID

The SSID is important for securing your wireless network. By changing the default SSID to a unique name, you can prevent unauthorized access to your network. It also helps users easily identify and connect to their preferred network among the available options.

Changing SSID

To change the SSID of your wireless network, you can access the router settings through a web browser and locate the Wi-Fi settings. From there, you can enter a new name for your network and save the changes. It is recommended to choose a unique and secure SSID to enhance network security.
