Quick read: 17 funny Wi-Fi network names of 2017

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.
