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’m no techie either, but I do recall that our network does not require a password as long as it recognizes the machine when it is plugged in. With a new machine, it requires a password. Our network is encrypted.
Look at the wireless icon on your device. Is there a little lock next to it? If not, then no, you are not.
Most likely if you’re using a password, you’re using some sort of encryption. WEP is very weak and was cracked years ago. Unless you’re using a 15+ character password for WEP, you’re vulnerable. If you’re using WPA, you should be okay for the time being.
