Smile On Fridays secured coverage in Verdict for OneLogin
The UK is ranked worst for WI-FI security, according to new research.
This is according to OneLogin, an identity and access management provider, which surveyed 5,000 remote employees from Germany, France, the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland and the United States, to coincide with World Password Day.
The Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdown or social distancing measures currently in place in many locations has resulted in a move to remote access. Because of this, many employees may now be accessing sensitive company data or company networks from home, making security key.
However, the research revealed that in the UK, 50% of respondents had not changed their home WI-FI password in the last two years, compared with 36% overall. 25% of all of those surveyed never changed their password.
