This was more about the collection of personal data on unencrypted wireless networks, IIRC. That being said, shame on ANYONE who runs an unencrypted wireless network.
I’ve offered to help numerous neighbors who leave their wireless networks open, and most of them take me up on the offer. In this day and age, it’s imperative that you protect your data with every means possible.
I’m not tech savvy. I need a password to get into my wireless for Kindle,but my PC doesn’t need it.
Am I encrypted?
I will admit that I an a Neanderthal with all the electronic equipment we all have access to.
I do not understand how ANY private information could be gathered by Google if they are only driving by & taking pictures of properties.
IF they have some other type of equipment on board & are getting other information, I would personally sue them out of business.
