All of those have some security issues. WPA2 is the best of them and commonly available. WPA3 is better yet but not supported everywhere. WEP is worthless. Don't use it.

Here's one link that discusses WPA3 and earlier versions: What Is WPA3, and When Will I Get It On My Wi-Fi?

The most common WPA configuration is WPA-PSK (Pre-Shared Key). The keys used by WPA are 256-bit, a significant increase over the 64-bit and 128-bit keys used in the WEP system. TKIP employs a per-packet key system that was radically more secure than the fixed key system used by WEP.
