Knowledge Base - Hiding WiFi Broadcast

On the WiFi tab of the Control Panel, WiFiRanger routers provide the user the capability of turning "hiding" the WiFi broadcast by turning off the SSID identifier.  This is different from turning off the WiFi broadcast itself.  Some people choose to hide their broadcasts because they believe it provides additional security.  Although WiFi Ranger provides this capability, we recommend that you leave your SSID visible.  Against sophisticated hackers hiding the SSID provides only minimally increased security.
