The wifi access point is one of the most awesome inventions of our modern world. The fact that you can get internet connection spread in the air was just a fantasy from sci-fi movies a few years ago.
Wireless internet employs radio waves to transfer information across a network. This way, all the devices such as smartphones, tablets, and computers with the appropriate adapters can have access to the internet.
However, wireless access points raise a lot of issues, especially when it comes to wireless internet security. Internet hackers found a way to have access to people’s personal information and data through public wifi networks.
True, it makes us happy sometimes to find a free public wifi internet when we are walking down the street or in a public place.
However, what most people don’t realize is that by pressing the ‘connect’ button, they may be putting their phones and computers in a vulnerable position to be hacked.
