Your internet router (often referred to as a "modem") is one of the most important gadgets in your home, helping to keep devices like your smartphone, computer, gaming system and smart TV connected to the internet. If your router or home network are compromised by a hacker or even a neighbor attempting to join your network, it puts any of your connected devices at risk.
