Information, secretly stealing all kinds of WiFi password information, in the case of consumers without the slightest knowledge, the information will be passed to the background of the software, everything is done without hesitation.
CCTV reporters found out after testing that they not only stole WiFi passwords, but also used this software to see all the privacy behind this WiFi network. For example: personal WeChat. From the phone number we just obtained, we searched for a micro signal and added it. A password has found a WeChat, but the stolen things are far more than that. In addition, in the vicinity of the offices of some national administrative agencies, it is still possible to connect to the internal network system by means of this operation, including the office building of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Bank of China Beijing Branch.

Once your “WiFi” is shared, it hides many security risks. More importantly, for the country’s information security related to the sovereign state of the country, “not what you can collect, then you are spying intelligence, that is, leaking state secrets. Selling personal information that leaks state secrets and stealing other people’s trade secrets, We must crack down on laws and regulations."

It is a way to share resources through WiFi hotspots, allowing users to easily connect and securely access the Internet.
