Still, all these types of encryptions also come under the attack of hackers. So, the main important step is to change the pass-code of Wi Fi as soon as possible. Never keep the default pass-code.

Have you run out of connection?

If you are connected to the device through the Wi-Fi network, you will be disconnected at the time the pass-code change is effective.

The reason is that the secret phrase saved by your device is not valid. You will simply have to reconnect to the network using the new security phrase.

If, on the other hand, you have connected through an Ethernet cable, you will not run out of connection.

Even so, you will also have to modify the Wi-Fi key stored in your computer, smartphone, smart speaker ...
