WiFi connectivity is a necessity as most of the mobile devices nowadays are coming with built-in WiFi adaptors. WiFi enables your electronic gadgets to ‘talk’ to other gadgets and to control and being controlled by other gadgets via Internet without complicated cabling systems. You can use your mobile phone to talk, to download, to control your TV, home security camera or even to open the door for you. WiFi connectivity makes life easier and more convenient. But in that convenience lies vulnerability if the WiFi network is not properly secured. A secured WiFi network is an important way of protecting your data, personal information or other tangible or intangible things in life. Building on the quantitative data collected from the 207 respondents in 2014 and comparing the findings with the data collected in the previous year, this paper investigates WiFi usage and WiFi security in Hong Kong. This study has two objectives: to identify any knowledge gap exists in using and setting up WiFi system; and to use the findings to help policy makers, WiFi security advisory bodies and service providers devise appropriate WiFi security measures and education programmes.
