Broadband consumers with Wi-Fi 'should secure access'

Broadband consumers with Wi-Fi 'should secure access'News brought to you by Skint Tariffs, providers of cheap broadband deals.

People getting broadband connections and beaming them around their house on a Wi-Fi system should protect their networks, or be exposed to "piggy backers".

Piggy backers are people who access the internet with other people's internet connections, and a recent survey from Sophos has revealed that at least half broadband users have done it.

Protecting your access can lead to money savings, as having other people on your account could send you past your download limit.

There is also the risk that they will engage in illegal activity, in fact, "piggy backing", whatever it is used for is illegal, according to Section 125 of the 2003 Communications Act.

Two men were arrested in Tweedmouth in a rare collar of piggy backers.

They were discovered when their victim saw them both sitting in a car using laptops.

Tommy Neate, managing director of Get Safe Online, told the Berwick Advertiser that 7.8 million people leave their internet access unsecured so anybody can access it.

He said: "Online criminals can use an unsecured network to hijack your PC or laptop, meaning that they can see, steal, delete or even add files on your machine."

There are however, steps users can take to reduce the risk.
