Mark.JUK writes “Some 40% of wireless (Wi-Fi) Internet access Hotspots in the USA are unlocked and do not require a security password, which compares with 25% in Europe; according to WeFi based statistics. Across the world, approximately 30% of recorded Wi-Fi access points are unlocked, while some 70% are locked. Nice to see everybody taking security so seriously then. It should be perfectly possible to “share” Wi-Fi while using WPA or WPA2 security measures at the same time.”
