So had this discussion awhile back - why you might not want to post your SSID or ones in your area on a public forum..

So NeoBond -- I show that network snipped here.. I would assume that is very close to where your wifi name is you posted?

True. Because every person that posts something online is going to instantly be targeted and killed by a crazed person, right?

I could care less who knows mine, getting connected to it is the fun part ;p

I get bored in my flat and change my Wifi every now and again. We've had:

Avengers Assemble and our neighbours changed theirs to SHIELD.

Rodimus Prime

Hide Yo Kids Hide Yo Wifi

Pretty Fly For A Wifi

Currently its WAN Mata (as in Juan Mata, Chelsea footballer)

If you could care less, then why don't you even have your location City or Country even in your profile?

Since NeoBond has snipped out my map and SSID he posted that shows up - guess it was pretty close ;) hehehe Which was my point quite some time ago when people were posting their SSIDs

Nowhere did I suggest that any crazed person would go after anyone.. Just wanted to point out that there are many different databases that show location of SSIDs and wireless macs - that do allow for location finding to fairly accurate location sometimes.

If you have concerns of someone knowing where your wifi network is located within a few hundred feet.. Then you might not want to be posting your SSID is all I am trying to say..

That being said - continue with what your doing..

edit: btw @Neobond I don't think you have to worry about your actual SSID, I show well over 2000 with that exact same SSID ;)

If I change my WiFi name, do I have to reconnect all my devices to it again?
