Some surprising results are out from a new survey about wifi security: while 32% of Americans say they have borrowed a neighbor’s wifi  connection, another 40% say they would be more likely to trust someone with their house key than with their wifi network password. And more than 25% say sharing their wifi network password feels more personal than sharing their toothbrush. The results are featured in this article from USA Today, which also details simple steps to encrypt your home’s wifi network and how to stay safe while at airports, cafes, and other locations with public wifi connections.
