Many people proudly proclaim to the electronic world their WiFi network name as the name of their business or family name.
This makes sense if you are Starbucks or McDonalds and you are offering free public WiFi access.
However, I think it is a mistake to be doing this if you don’t have a good reason other than not knowing what else to choose. It would be better to not attract attention to your network with a name such as Banana or Gone Fishing.
One of the best SSID’s I have seen was “Surveillance Van”. Definitely got a good chuckle out of that one.
Unfortunately Wireless technologies are generally insecure and these signals go well beyond the physical boundries of your walls. Someone could be sitting in a surveillance van across the street connected to your network.
Another mistake I commonly see is that WiFi passwords never get changed. Employees come and go but they still have access to connect to the corporate network.
Now go be creative and change the name of your Wireless network.
