Changing open wifi to secured

HP Pavillion 17-g121wm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I went from XP to Windows 10.  Quite a change!! 

How do I change from 0pen wifi to a secured connection?  Will need very detailed instructions if possible. ThankYou

Changing open wifi to secured

Hi,

 

This is nothing to do with your computer, it is from your wireless router (or Access Point - also called AP). All you have to do is to change from the AP itself. Is it YOUR router/AP ? You have to logon to it and change from there.

 

You can see many Open networks around you now such as from Airports, Railway stations, libraries, shopping malls .... If that is the case, nothing you can do about that, they open for everyone.

 

Regards.
