Google probably has your wi-fi password

Monday, September 16, 2013

What is it with these companies? Android apparently has a feature that will gleefully ‘back up’ your passwords to Google’s servers, which is precisely where I don’t want them:

Google knows nearly every Wi-Fi password in the world

Fortunately, being paranoid about security, I’d already turned off that ‘helpful’ feature. But most others probably have it on and have no idea what they’re handing to Google.

I’m sick of this crap. Clearly we can no longer trust any technology company, particularly those in America. Android devices should never be allowed to connect to anything other than known insecure networks.
