Most devices today need an internet connection to be useful but anyone can set up a free Wi-Fi network and fool you into handing over your personal data.
Know or verify who owns Wi-Fi or wired networks before you connect
- Connect to secure networks whenever possible
- Don’t connect to sensitive accounts if you’re using public Wi-Fi (e.g., McDonalds)
- Use VPN connections if you have to connect to a public network
- Password protect your home Wi-Fi network with a strong password
Connect to EKU_SECURE
At EKU we offer a secure Wi-Fi network for students, faculty, and staff to use. It encrypts your data over the network, protecting your information as it travels between your device and its destination.
This Wi-Fi network is for guests and visitors at EKU who do not need or do not qualify for an EKU account. This network is limited so not all EKU-specific sites will work on it.
