available wifi list does not show secure vs open

Am I missing something? A setting? I hope so, I really need to see an indication of secured vs. open wifi signals. (truck driver). This is silly!

I realized later that there is an indication, though backwards from way I would have done it. The indication is 'no indication' if secure, but a little something if it is unsecured. Reason I didn't see a difference was all available where I was that night were secured.
