Weak security identified on iPhone after ios14 update

Weak security identified on iPhone after iOS 14 update.

The suggestion is to connect to a WPA2 (AES) or WPA3 network / configure router to this type of network.

considering that Virgin is meant to be the best most secure network, this concerns me.

I meant the part in bold

"...considering that Virgin is meant to be the best most secure network..."

Re: Weak security identified on iPhone after ios14 update

Hi Gary,

Sorry about the misunderstanding.

Its just from virgin media blurb (always claiming to offer the best, fastest and secure network out there) and trying to make a point to VM that I’m seeing this message.

I've never seen them call themselves "secure".

Anyway, WPA3 is not supported on their current line of hubs.

From the spgray response it looks like there is a work around.

However, are VM going to update to latest up to date router/software so that it’s customers don’t have to do that for themselves. I expect better tbh.

It will likely involve hardware changes as well as firmware.

WPA3 is only required for devices after July 2020 that are WiFi Alliance Certified - https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/wi-fi-alliance-makes-wpa3-mandatory-for-device-certification

So no, it's unlikely.

You can always use Modem Mode and attach your own router that supports it.
