TechCrunch is reporting that Charter Communication’s Spectrum service encouraged people to change the WiFi passwords to show their support for the Super Bowl, scheduled to take place in two weeks.
I’m going to repeat what the article said: this is a terrible idea. Don’t do this.
As I write this post, the tweet has since been deleted.
Probably because it’s a terrible idea.
JUST TO MAKE CLEAR: DON’T CHANGE YOUR WIFI PASSWORD TO SOMETHING EASILY GUESSABLE.
OR BECAUSE SOMEONE ON THE INTERNET SUGGESTED IT ON TWITTER.
