Default Wifi iPhone

If I have my wifi turned on on my iPhone can someone hack it with just having my wifi on. I was at a professional ball game with lots of people didn't know the possibility

Default Re: Wifi iPhone

it's wireless so it transmits and that transmission can be received and your phone can receive a wireless signal back. That's basically how it works. They would have to know your wireless password but it would be possible to hack your phone via the wifi. I never have my wireless or bluetooth, which is also a wireless system, turned on unless I am going to use them. I think bluetooth is more of a danger in that respect as, unless you have changed your pairing code which most do not do, then anyone can access your device by pairing it and using the default code, usually 0000 or something equally easy.

They can access to your whole phone over wifi just by being on the same network.
