Security Precautions
Because Wi-Fi uses radio waves to transmit signals, security precautions 
more stringent than when using a LAN cable are required.
Keep the following points in mind when using Wi-Fi.
Only use networks you are authorized to use.
This product searches for Wi-Fi networks in the vicinity and displays the 
results on the screen. Networks you are not authorized to use (unknown 
networks) may also be displayed. However, attempting to connect to or 
using such networks could be regarded as unauthorized access. Be sure 
to use only networks you are authorized to use, and do not attempt to 
connect to other unknown networks.
If security settings have not been properly set, the following problems may 
Transmission monitoring
Third parties with malicious intent may monitor Wi-Fi transmissions and 
attempt to acquire the data you are sending.
Unauthorized network access
Third parties with malicious intent may gain unauthorized access to 
the network you are using to steal, modify, or destroy information. 
Additionally, you could fall victim to other types of unauthorized access 
such as impersonation (where someone assumes an identity to gain 
access to unauthorized information) or springboard attacks (where 
someone gains unauthorized access to your network as a springboard to 
cover their tracks when infiltrating other systems).
To prevent these types of problems from occurring, be sure to thoroughly 
secure your Wi-Fi network.
Only use this camera’s Wi-Fi function with a proper understanding of 
Wi-Fi security, and balance risk and convenience when adjusting security
