I read that I should be cautious of "copycat" networks, but I don't know how to spot them.
Can you tell based on the photo below if that is a legitimate network from Xfinity?
Should there be "lock" symbol by the network name?
I'm new to this. Thanks.
I can't see the photo I uploaded.
Connect to XFINITY
I'll try to upload the photo again...
Thanks. I was just thinking about this because
(1) I got a work email warning us to be careful of copy-cat networks
(2) I read that 'everyone' should be using VPNs when using public wifi, so I assumed that it was risky, but I don't know HOW TO IDENTIFY when something IS a copy-cat.
I just did an internet search and found this (bleow) so I'm still curious:
A VPN secures your computer’s internet connection to guarantee that all of the data you’re sending and receiving is encrypted and secured from prying eyes. (lifehacker dot com)
So can you tell, based on the photo in my original question, if that is a legitimate network from Xfinity?
