Is WPA2 Secure?

Episode 1776 (58:00)

Jeff from Pasadena, CA
WiFi

Jeff is getting a warning about his WPA2 WiFi encryption. Should he move to a new router? Leo says that WPA2 was cracked, but he'd really have to have someone targeting him to really worry about it. WPA3 is the new standard and routers are starting to include it, but Leo doesn't think there's anything to worry about. He could check the router's firmware update to see if they offer it now. How about separating the SSID for the 2.4Ghz and 5.0Ghz bands? Leo says he can do that, but won't really have to. But if he's concerned about the router's security, and if the firmware hasn't been updated in a long time, it's definitely time to get a new router.
