Wi-Fi signals might lead to auto break-ins

Laptops, iPhones or iPads with Wi-Fi helps to access many things while on the move but be careful friends it also has possibilities of attracting burglars.

According to the mobile security software company Credant Technologies, devices like iPhones or iPads, especially laptops that use Wi-Fi may require up to 30 minutes before going into "sleep" mode. In the mean time, the burglars detect them by searching for the signal using a specific scanner that costs only about $50

Recently in Jamaica, a group of people were caught for trying to scam the lottery and they were found to be using laptops stolen in this fashion.

So Every time you leave your laptop, iPhone or iPad in your car, better take some time to turn off the Wi-Fi.

While it may seem improbable that your automobile could become a target because of an open laptop, it may be cautious to make sure the Wi-Fi signal is shut off before leaving your automobile for long periods of time.
