What is a Wi-Fi SSID?
Many people connect to Wi-Fi without caring to know much about some of the technical terms that come with it. For example, the acronym SSID is very common when it comes to Wi-Fi networks.
SSID is a technical term for Wi-Fi routers that many people do not know how it works or what the acronym stands for. If for example, you are in a public place like the airport or a coffee shop and you want to join a Wi-Fi network, then all you do is check out the available wireless networks near you and join the one you have authorization to join. The name of the network is called SSID.
The acronym stands for “Service Set Identifier”. Simply put, it is a name or an identifier that tells you the network to join. A service set is a collection of wireless networking devices with the same parameters.
How is SSID used in Wi-Fi routers?
When you get a router from your service provider or when you buy one from a store, you will find an SSID sticker at the bottom of the router.
It is usually next to a barcode and it gives you the factory default network name of this particular router.
You can choose to use the given SSID set of letters as your router name or to distinguish yourself from your neighbors around you by choosing your own SSID name that you can easily remember.
This WiFi name can be cool, creative, funny, or just a nerdy one.
Changing your SSID is also the best thing to do if you have several networks in the same building or neighborhood. Setting up a different name for your router enables you to clarify who you are or maybe deter people from trying to abuse your network as some names in this article show.
SSID key features
One of the important characteristics that you need to know is that every SSID can have maximum of 32 case sensitive characters irrespective of the router manufacturer. You can use of course a lower number of characters.
Each WiFi SSID name on a router must be accompanied with a password which is the one used on your devices (smartphones, laptops etc) to connect to the wireless network.
Currently WPA2 (WiFi Protected Access version 2) is a great security protocol used in networks which allows your router to require a strong password for any clients that want to connect.
The newest security protocol that will come out with WiFi6 is called WPA3 and will be much more secure.
How SSID works
Once you switch on your computer or mobile phone, the first thing you are asked to do is to connect to a network. If you have already connected before, then your device will authenticate automatically to the known network and let you in.
If you want to connect to a new Wi-Fi network, you will need to scan through the available networks which will have icons showing whether they are open or require a password. If they are not open, they will show a padlock, which requires a password to open.
Only networks configured to show their Wi-Fi SSID name will appear automatically. If you want one that does not broadcast its Wi-Fi SSID name, then you will have to search for it manually by entering its name manually.
The SSID is the name that identifies your own home network and maybe can identify some characteristics of your personality as well (e.g creativity, how funny or nerd you are etc).
Configuring a unique and funny name for your home wireless network will surely bring a smile on your neighbor’s face!!
Moreover, hiding the Wi-Fi SSID name may not guarantee you the security you need because today, there are software and apps that can uncover any hidden networks. You therefore have to be very careful with the kind of information you choose to share out there and also choose a strong WPA2 password for your network.
