In the course of the year, attending both social and corporate events, I came across some very funny Wi-Fi network Service Set Identifiers (SSIDs).
If you have a router or you use your smartphone to host a Wi-Fi hotspot, then the first thing you probably did was set up a good name and password for the network SSID.
If you have had to use a generic network name for many months, then you might want to consider changing it to something more interesting.
A good SSID not only makes it easy for you to identify your network when you need to connect new devices, it can also serve as a conversation starter when friends come over, and it can provide a brief moment of amusement for strangers when they browse for connectable networks and see yours in the list.
When choosing a Wi-Fi network SSID, consider: aiming for a unique but memorable name; never including personal information like your real name, address, apartment number, birthdate, etc; never making the SSID related to the network password, and avoid provocative SSIDs that might make your network a prime target for hackers.
Meanwhile, going back to the business at hand, here are the top funny Wi-Fi network names we saw in 2017.
