old security standard

Been getting messages saying wifi not secure as it uses old security standard.

Have checked & have got WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK - is that not enough, or is that completely the wrong thing anyway?

I'm sure you can guess I'm not technically minded.... do I ignore the messages or what?

Re: old security standard

set it to WPA2 only, WPA is not considered secure (and hasn't been for quite some time).

Re: old security standard

Just to add to what @spgray posted above, WPA is deprecated now as not being secure, now WPA2 comes in two 'flavours' TKIP and AES and of these two TKIP is now considered to be insecure and iOS devices will flag connections using it.

Now if you set the router to use WPA/WPA2 and the client device supports it, it will always connect using WPA2 TKIP since that is compatible with WPA, as @spgray says, if you set the router to WPA2 only then it will negotiate the more secure AES encryption. All modern devices really should support AES now.

Re: old security standard

It's a notification that pops up every now & again. Can't do a screenshot.

I only turned on notifications recently which is probably why I'm only seeing these messages now.

Re: old security standard

The only other option it gives me is WPA2/PSK  (or disabled) - is that ok?

Yes, WPA2/PSK is fine for home use.

There are new technologies like WPA3 however is not supported by the VM HUBs.
