Re: Not for me thanks....

Wasn't there some panic around the Google email backup streetview cars recording MACs and SSIDs and it being linkable with public IP addresses and MACs meaning public IPs could be easily mapped against a known location, within a WiFi range of around 30 meters? I guess if that's still the case then having a view into a known house would be pretty useful for a would-be burgular.

Not a worry for me though, my WiFi has always been separate to my router so good luck with that one!
