Wireless Security

Message 1 of 3
(2,705 Views)

I received an email from Verizon that states they wanted me to know I an not using the most security encryption on the Verizon router. If they are so conserned, why do they have my SID and encryption key easily displayed on my account, my Verizon phone app, etc. Verizon should not even have access to my encryption key. Verizon is making my security more vulnerable.

 

Please remove my router security settings from ALL Web based databases that Verizon has!

This is a peer to peer support forum. For technical assistance you need to contact Verizon directly.

Being in your home is as good as having physical access to the router. In addition, the web portal is authenticated. I'd be less worried about those than I would be having a nosy neighbor exploting a WEP key.

 

Case in point, if you're not using WPA2, switch the router over.
