Interesting fact: the word Wi-Fi doesn’t actually have any meaning. The term became the brainchild of a brand consultancy firm when it was decided that its real name, “IEEE 802.11,” wasn’t exactly catchy. That’s fair enough. But with more than 22 billion Wi-Fi-enabled devices currently active in the world, it’s natural that some are susceptible to hacking or disruptions by criminals.

The internet is so widely used that you can access it from almost anywhere in the world. Wi-Fi networks make that access faster and easier than ever. Individuals and companies rely on having uninterrupted Wi-Fi networks. Imagine life without it! Unfortunately, unless your networks are well protected, they’re in danger of being exploited.
