40% of The British Lost In Wi-Fi Security Settings

The recent UK survey also found that every 6th household having Wi-Fi network is either unsure or already aware of being using an unsecured network.

The country’s Information Commissioner’s Office, which is the independent body organized to uphold information rights in the public interest, recently published the results of a study which proved how many innocent people will soon find themselves unfairly punished by oncoming Digital Economy Act.

Survey of 2,000 adults was held in the Internet, showing that 40% of people having a Wi-Fi connection at home can’t clearly understand how they can change the security settings. In addition, in spite of the fact that most ISPs now set up and install their clients’ Wi-Fi security settings themselves, 16% of the respondents having a Wi-Fi network are either unsure or aware of being using a vulnerable network.

The results are alarming. Apart from the common concerns, such as cyber crime and identity theft, the UK’s oncoming Digital Economy Act will mandate the termination of connections accused of unauthorized file-sharing. With that huge number of households that don’t know how to secure their Wi-Fi, it seems like many people will be falsely accused of violating the law and may suffer the consequences.

Head of Policy at the Information Commissioner’s Office pointed out that people wouldn’t go out leaving their front door unlocked, but they are still using the Internet without proper protection. The Office is now asking that Internet service providers, along with wireless router manufacturers and retailers, offer adequate guidance and technical support to ensure that people using Wi-Fi are aware of the risks the unsecured connections pose and can access the advice of how to solve the problem.

New guidance emphasizes to people that leaving Wi-Fi connection unsecured will allow others to easy access to the network, which may result in increase in traffic. This, in its turn, will reduce the speed of the connection for the Wi-Fi owners or cause them to exceed a data allotment set by the ISP. But the most important point outlined in the guidance is that unsecured Wi-Fi can be used by rogue individuals for carrying out criminal actions.

More than a year ago ISP Talk Talk also conducted a Wi-Fi survey, founding that 41% of the networks were vulnerable to unauthorized use.
