I'm concerned about my privacy; is your WiFi wireless network secure?
- WiFi, or wireless networks, are less secure than other forms of data transmission because wireless data is sent through the air. Because of this, there is no way to control what or who may receive the signal.
- Encryption (scrambling data to make it unusable to anyone except the recipient) can be employed, but is often easy to break and complicates connections, so we do not use it.
- The best way to be secure on WiFi is to not transmit information of a personal nature, such as social security numbers, bank accounts numbers, etc.
- We also strongly recommend that you have a udpated antivirus and personal firewall software.
