Every device that connects to a Wi-Fi network has been using the same WP2 security protocol for the last 10 years. Now, Wi-Fi Alliance, an industry body that certifies Wi-Fi enabled gadgets, has now introduced certifications for the new WP3 security protocol. In other words, Wi-Fi devices will now offer WP3 security protocol which makes it harder for hackers to guess your Wi-Fi password.

WPA3 protocol adds new features to simplify Wi-Fi security and delivers increased cryptographic strength. The introduction WP3 doesn’t mean that your old Wi-Fi devices will stop working. The older WPA2 protocol-based devices will continue to interoperate. The WPA3 security comes in two forms–WPA3-Personal and WPA3-Enterprise. (TOI)
