My parents won't let me change it. Or the password (the default password of most routers). Talk about maximum security.

Next question that ties in with this, how many of you go out if your way to hide/encrypt/whatever your passwords/log in details/etc? And if so, who are you hiding them from?

Not me, I live in the middle of nowhere and have no security on my WiFi network.

If people can find my house, in my opinion they deserve to be able to use my WiFi connection, besides all my shared files have passwords on them anyway.

And even if I did have security on my network people could connect to my WiFi via BT FON anyway.
