Johannesburg: Wi-Fi hotspots can become a serious security threat for users as it`s very easy to trick the users into joining a spoofed hotspot.

Founder of execMobile Craig Lowe said the controller of the spoofed hotspot can access any user name and passwords entered by Wi-Fi users into their devices while connected to the hotspot.

According to a website, more than half (55 percent) of IT managers are using Wi-Fi connectivity apps for work purposes.
