Why you shouldn’t rely on Apple-generated passwords .


silver-apple-logo-apple-pictureAnew flaw has been discovered in apple product.If  you’re using your iPhone as your personal Wi-Fi hotspot in a public place, you may want to skip Apple’s offer of creating a makeshift password for you.

Sources report  that “researchers at the University of Erlangen in Germany have found a flaw in the automatically generated pre-shared keys that’s been used in Apple’s iOShotspots that could make them easy target to a hacker in under a minute.”

Essentially, you’re much better off relying on your own complex password when tethering devices to your iPhone than the  Apple’s makeshift password system.

Being said that its best of effort to include a long length password string that consists of numeric and non-numeric characters.
