After More Than a Decade, Wi-Fi Security Finally Gets a Major Update

Wi-Fi Protected Access II, commonly known as WPA2, has been the standard for securing wireless networks for over a decade, but cracks are starting to show. The industry is now getting ready for its successor and we might see it in new devices this year. WPA3 will simplify Wi-Fi configuration while providing improved security and data encryption, announced the Wi-Fi Alliance, a standards organization whose members include Apple, Microsoft, Intel, Samsung, Cisco and other major technology companies.
