What is Wi-Fi?

In laymen’s terms, Wi-Fi is the process of sending information wirelessly to your internet connection.

Many devices can use Wi-Fi, e.g. personal computers, video-game consoles, smartphones, digital cameras, tablet computers and digital audio players. These can connect to a network resource such as the Internet via a wireless network access point. Such an access point (or hotspot) has a range of about 20 meters (66 feet) indoors and a greater range outdoors.

Wi-Fi can be less secure than wired connections, such as Ethernet, because an intruder does not need a physical connection. Wi-Fi has adopted various encryption technologies to help with this. The early encryption WEP proved easy to break. Higher quality protocols (WPA, WPA2) were added later. The Wi-Fi Alliance has updated its test plan and certification program to ensure all newly certified devices resist attacks.

Wi-Fi provides service in private homes, businesses, and public spaces at Wi-Fi hotspots set up either free-of-charge or commercially. Organizations and businesses, such as airports, hotels, and restaurants, often provide free-use hotspots to attract customers.

 

Data security risk

In order to maximize your security, you want to set up your Wi-Fi system to operate using WPA or WPA2 encryption. Think of this as away to only allow people you give permission to use your Wi-Fi. You don’t give everyone a copy of your house key and you shouldn’t give everyone access to your computer and private information.

The most common wireless encryption is WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy), but it is easy to break through even when set up the correct way. Most Wi-Fi is set to automatically use this open mode lack of safety out of the box, mostly because it is easy to plug it in and start using it.
