New Vz Security & Privacy app claims Vz router is unsecure

Message 1 of 3

Good morning,

 

Verizon recently pushed an updated Security & Privacy app to my phone.  Suddenly, it's calling out many wireless networks as unsecure, including my home network, powered and managed by a Verizon-provided router.  Nothing has changed except this app, so why is Verizon's new app reporting that Verizon's router is unsecure and what do I need to change to make it secure and compliant with Verizon's own app?  The messaging is woefully unspecific: "You're connected to the unsecure Wi-Fi network, [network name].  Do you want to disconnect?"

 

Thank you.

Without giving private info, what security protocol are you using?
WPA? WEP?
