- Many Wireless Routers Lack Basic Security Protections, Consumer Reports' Testing Finds
- Aug 6 2019
That's kind of a "duh" in my opinion. Most end-users would find any meaningful security annoying. They don't really care about "security." The just want the silly thing to work. Pick a network, punch in the password once, get connected. An "advanced" user might want to play with the network name, or change the password, but that's really it.
I think the community has been moving in the right direction as far as security is concerned. End-to-end encryption is the way to go. Don't trust the network. That's just foolish.
