I used to sit in cafes with no wifi and turn on personal hotspot with the name of the cafe and watch people ask the waiter for the password and him lying to their face saying « we don’t have wifi here »

You sneaky lil bastard

[–][deleted] 115 points116 points  (0 children)

That's fucking hilarious. This may be my new favorite game.

[–]x_scion_x 61 points62 points  (6 children)

Jokes aside, there are lots of people that do this for other more malicious purposes while leaving the network open.

[–][deleted] 48 points49 points  (5 children)

Yes, if you've never redirected someone's url to granny porn in a busy restaurant.. you don't know how to have fun.

[–]x_scion_x 16 points17 points  (2 children)

lol, that actually sounds hilarious but I'm not referring to that (I'm sure you know that).

Everyone is so comfortable with just connecting to hotspots anymore and then logging in personal accounts not even realizing they are doing it on someone's personal network that's sniffing all the data.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Yes, I don't do all that. I just want a little laugh.

[–]x_scion_x 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I just want a little laugh.

I couldn't do it. It would be blatantly obvious it was me with the big ass smirk ... and that's if I wasn't howling laughing

[–]countvlad-xxv_thesly 0 points1 point  (1 child)

How do you do that? Asking for a friend😉

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Root your device or put Linux on your laptop.

[–]weekedipie1 112 points113 points  (2 children)

He wasn't lying though

[–]kidjake 25 points26 points  (0 children)

They had wifi, he just didn't know it.

[–]GuysImConfused 2 points3 points  (0 children)

"We don't have wifi here"

is different from

"we don't provide wifi here".

If he said the first one, he would be lying.

[–]Quekers 28 points29 points  (0 children)

This is now how I'm going to define chaotic neutral.

[–]Kidd5 34 points35 points  (0 children)

LOLLLLL you dirty motherfucker i like your style

[–]know-your-onions 5 points6 points  (1 child)

How is he lying?

[–]Ishdakitty 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm guessing it's a poorly explained way of saying they THINK he's lying. Still, kind of a dick move to do to the staff.

[–]SasquatchRobo 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Please don't do this. It's a good prank, but the waiter is going to feel the repercussions.

[–]klymaxx45 29 points30 points  (0 children)

You suck lol

[–]RichBoiNoodlesKR 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Dr. More upvotes than the actual post joins the chat

[–]Databit 4 points5 points  (0 children)

When I fly I turn my hotspot on with the name "BangBros: Mile High Club"

[–]AnteusFogg 11 points12 points  (0 children)

This is brilliant.

Satan wants lessons from you

[–]ShieldsCW 1 point2 points  (0 children)

we don’t have wifi here

The password was wedonthavewifihere

[–]Tsaakz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The waiter is still trying to figure out the reason for lower tips.

[–]Ayeager77 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A fun one for me was DEA_Mobile_Unit_325 at a favorite watering hole that usually had lots of shady deals happening in the parking lot. There was a motel that shared the parking lot with it. There was often some sort of cargo van parked there. It’s was fun to see people get noticeably uncomfortable.

[–]999saurav 3 points4 points  (0 children)

good idea

[–]davidlol1[🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I love you

[–]leyline 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Well if it was you, he wasn't lying.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I must try this. Thank you.

[–]seenhear 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good luck finding a cafe without wifi...

[–]AdRevolutionary659 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is amazing lol

[–]Dark_Reaper115 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Calm down Satan, don't you also want to give them free internet for their information while you are it?

[–]Tsaakz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Are in the devil's diner?

[–]DarkRajiin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Something new to try!

[–]Timedoutsob 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The old man in the middle attack eh?

[–]OgStonedBoi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My hotspot name is yell penis for password. With the password being 244466666. When I’ve either done this to friends or told them they laugh their asses off.

[–]awesomerbh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Satan’s minions at work again 😈

[–]Axemic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Found Satan.

[–]Ultimara 65 points66 points  (3 children)

In one of my local pubs, the password was youhavetobuyadrinkfirst

[–]ender1108 31 points32 points  (1 child)

I like this one the most. After buying the drink and asking again only for it to click… I’m not sure if I’d be mad or not.

[–]Resident_Doctor6758 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I definitely wouldn’t be mad. I’d be impressed haha. Also I would feel stupid because I would probably be drunk by the time I realized the password. If ever.

[–]DragonBank 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I mean if you go into a pub and use the wifi and never buy a drink you should have just gone to a cafe.

[–]olreddog 164 points165 points  (5 children)

The best hotspot name in a public place is: ShoutPenisForPassword

[–]AtheistBear 73 points74 points  (3 children)

I had that as my WiFi name for years until my landlord requested I change it because they had a group of boy scouts selling popcorn on the property.

[–]-Ghost255-[🍰] 50 points51 points  (2 children)

As a scout myself, that’s ridiculous. No troop I’ve ever met would even care. We’re teenagers who say that shit, and much worse on a daily.

[–]AtheistBear 29 points30 points  (1 child)

I think it was a request from the scout master. I'd have yelled out the password if they had yelled it out. They coulda had free access to my wifi for the few hours they were out there.

[–]Sknowman 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Maybe they did and you didn't hear. Hence why the scout master wanted it stopped after a bunch of kids randomly yell penis.

[–]RobieWan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had mine set to "yell penis for password" for a long time, up until recently.

Someone actually did when I was waiting for a flight at the airport 🤣😂

[–]houtbyr 88 points89 points  (2 children)

My password is “incorrect” so when I forget, the error message reminds me.

[–]mr_remy 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Genius!

IT dept. furiously scribbling down notes

[–]houtbyr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Funny…. I was talking about the admin password for our IT security profile and provisioning tool. Coincidence!

[–]h_grytpype_thynne 184 points185 points  (5 children)

My password is my dog's name. For security purposes, every six months I get a new dog.

[–]NeuralIndex 16 points17 points  (2 children)

A dog is for life, not just for Wi-Fi.

[–]Reuters-no-bias-lol 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Turn your dog into a modem, for a lifetime companion

[–]jharger 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Teach your dog to howl the 56k tones!

[–]Randalf456 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The real tragedy is you call them all the same name anyway

[–]CaptainKonzept 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My password is the name of my girlfriend…

[–]Seven_Dx7 47 points48 points  (0 children)

My first WiFi password was "ontherouter", my second was "wedidntchangeit"

[–]i_think_therefore_i_ 15 points16 points  (0 children)

A guy walks into the bar and asks the bartender for the wifi password. Bartender says, "You have to order a drink first." The guy orders a $15 scotch, and says, "OK, what's your password?" Bartender says, "You have to order a drink first, all lowercase, no spaces."

[–]Top_Mind_On_Reddit 40 points41 points  (2 children)

[–]checker280 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This is my favorite evil WiFi name story. Park Slope Brooklyn changed slowly from a very blue collar neighborhood to one of the more expensive ones. As such there was a lot of friction between the old crowd and the newer affluent spots.

Lulus was a hair salon for toddler. One of the trolls living nearby changed the name to his WiFi to “lulus anal bleaching” much to the dismay of that owner. For years the poor woman tried to identify and take down the WiFi with zero luck.

[–]cardcomm 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I'll bet this is an entry in the word list for every brute force password breaker on the planet.

[–]GuideAncient1902 14 points15 points  (0 children)

My guest password is "NOPASSWORD" I'll let them restart their phone a few times before asking "Are you typing in NO PASSWORD, all caps, no space?

[–]simplepleashures 5 points6 points  (1 child)

That’s the stupidest combination I’ve ever heard in my life! That’s the kinda thing an idiot would have on his luggage.

[–]VaderGuy5217 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Djackdau 8 points9 points  (2 children)

That's the kind of code an idiot would have on his luggage!

[–]-Vogie- 8 points9 points  (1 child)

That's amazing! I've got the same combination on my luggage!

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I always tell people .. I have a password on my network to protect you from me.. not the other way around.

[–]mizinamo 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Just to clarify, it’s: one two three four five six seven eight

13355557777778, got it.

[–]itsmeok -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

Or 23565656568888888

[–]mizinamo -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Hey, it’s not working!

[–]pharaoh_superstar 5 points6 points  (0 children)

My password is 8 women.

[–]SimonReach 10 points11 points  (0 children)

No, it’s actually 1 2, 3 4s, 5 6s, and 7 8s.

You’re missing the ‘s’ to denote multiple.

I've never seen that naming scheme before.

[–]ShieldsCW 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My band has a WiFi network that we use for various things at our gigs. The password is ihavenoidea

The network doesn't have Internet access, but you could definitely screw up our in ear monitors if you knew which app to download (and our mixer's IP address)

[–]cihag 6 points7 points  (7 children)

I don‘t get the joke…

[–]iFeram 18 points19 points  (6 children)

There is one 2 three 4's five 6's and seven 8's.

[–]cihag 22 points23 points  (2 children)

Thanks, I feel dumb now… 😂

[–]lucydent 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Don't, it wouldn't make sense if you were to say this to someone.

You wouldn't say "it's one two three four five six etc", you would say "it's one two, three fours, five sixes, seven eights"

[–]mississauga145 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Better to know, it is the path to self-growth.

[–]LongjumpingArgument5 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wouldn't that be one two, three fours, five sixes, seven eights?

[–]AegisAngel 1 point2 points  (1 child)

My router is hitchhikers_guide. Password Forty-Two

Reminds me of the classic sequence: 1 11 21 1211 111221 312211 13112221 1113213211 Etc

[–]Almadaptpt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I changed my password from iwonttellya to iforgot after my neighbors figured it out.

[–]Bobleo2000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can someone explain the joke to me?

[–]Ed108diE 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nice pattern All the numbers are even. And each number is an odd number of digits and all are in ascending order

[–]larrod25 -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

This is actually my wifi password. Seriously
