The UFV-Wireless network is open, or "public." What this means is that any information travelling over this wireless network is not protected by encryption. This increases the risk that information you enter, or sessions you are running, may be viewed by someone else. Depending on your activity, credit card numbers, bank account details, Twitter and Facebook information could be vulnerable.
UFV-Secure is a secure wireless network. Information travelling over a secure network is protected by encryption. Someone with the right tools can still see information is sent and received. However, the encryption makes that information unreadable. Therefore, personal and confidential information can be transmitted safely.
