Although in Europe we increasingly have better access to data rates with tens of gigabytes or even unlimited, Wi-Fi continues to be a very useful connection when we are at home, allowing us to take advantage of a connection without limits, whether in our data rate. or on the mobile battery.
For many people, it is still common to connect to their loved ones’ Wi-Fi, checking the password as soon as they arrive home. Android has more and more better tools that make sharing a Wi-Fi network more secure than ever. And why is that?
Compartir tu red Wi-Fi by sharing nearby
Since Android 10, we have the possibility of sharing our Wi-Fi network by a QR code (a feature that was superimposed like MIUI or EMUI long before) a tool which, although extremely useful, does not mean that Android cannot not yet offer more comfortable forms to share your home Wi-Fi.
As discussed in XDA Developers, Android source code revealed what would be a new way to share your Wi-Fi. The AOSP comment suggests that your network’s share button can send the data needed to connect through Sharing nearby, the official Android alternative to the Apple Airdrop.
In case of arrival, for a user to be able to share their Wi-Fi, it should be updated to Android 12, but for the receiver of the Wi-Fi network, it would suffice to have a mobile compatible with the sharing near.
Google’s alternative to the Apple Airdrop, nearby sharing, is here
Google has started to enable the nearby sharing feature on certain mobiles, Google’s alternative to Apple’s Airdrop, which will allow you to send files.
Now alright Why do tools like this allow you to have a more secure network? The principle is very basic, and is that if in the end sharing your Wi-Fi network does not even require you to have to remember the password, you can put passwords that are much more complex and difficult to guess. Ultimately, making the network more secure is ultimately up to you, and if the password you have is 12345678, these tools will not make your network more inaccessible to third parties.
