Most Home Users Secure Wi-Fi Networks: Study

A new study by JupiterResearch indicates that majority of consumers — 60 percent — use security applications such as WPA (WiFi Protected Access) and WPA2 on their wireless networks to protect their computers and data. JupiterResearch analyst Ina Sebastian said “security is the number one concern for Wi-Fi network owners” as “they are particularly afraid of personal information theft and eavesdropping.” As to bandwith theft, the report shows that 10 percent of respondents were able to log onto a neighbor’s network and nearly a third took advantage of unsecured WiFi networks while traveling.
