An appeal by the Italian Red Cross for residents of the areas affected by earthquake yesterday to open their WiFi, with free access, without being protected by a code.
An 6.2-sized earthquake struck central Italy on Wednesday morning, killing 247 people so far in small towns in this area. Disaster relief organizations are already working hard to find and rescue survivors. To help their efforts, the Italian Red Cross asked the citizens who live in nearby areas to turn them off WiFi their passwords so that workers and those affected can easily use these networks.
In addition to helping rescue teams stay connected to the internet, unlocking the WiFi network can also help survivors contact their loved ones and update them on their situation. In such difficult cases its common use Internet connection could also allow people in the area to bypass mobile phone service congestion by using VoIP and messaging apps.
Of course, disabling the code poses a risk to users τους να κατασκοπεύσει κάποιος τρίτος την κυκλοφορία του ιστού, αλλά αν δεν χρειάζεται να χρησιμοποιήσει κάποιος την πρόσβαση σε ιδιωτικές υπηρεσίες όπως online τραπεζικές συναλλαγές κλπ, τότε το ξεκλείδωμα του WiFi δεν θα έχει theme.
Certainly the movement helping fellow humans in distress is worth the risk and effort of temporarily disabling Wifi access restriction.
Of course, the news concerns the residents of the neighboring country, but keep in mind this request of the Italian Red Cross, as it is necessary to do it in every corner of this planet that is affected by a natural disaster. THE Greece it is an earthquake-prone country and if at some point the earthquake hits your area, don't hesitate for a moment to provide all possible help to the rescue crews and your fellow citizens by disabling your WiFi lock.
