Default WiFi Security

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knew anything about WiFi Security.

I have a customer who regularly uses WiFi to connect to the internet when abroad to send and receive e-mails to avoid expensive roaming charges.

They are concerned that somebody with access to the WiFi network could attach to their device and access their data.

A. Is this even remotely possible? I am not aware that their are any file sharing options on the device (at least until version 5) but would like to make certain.

B. If so what can be done to prevent this? e.g. on my laptop I use a Firewall to restrict access.

c. Would it be advisable to encrypt data on the device? can you encrypt data on the SD Card?

Thank You

David
