Well maybe not their lives, but the lives of their first borns.
Read here, via the Washington Post:
A good Wi-Fi network is hard to find, but six Londoners were willing to pay the ultimate price - based on the Terms and Conditions they agreed to, anyway.
In an experiment sponsored by security firm F-Secure, an open Wi-Fi network was set up in a busy public area. When people connected, they were presented with lengthy terms and conditions.
But to see just how little attention we pay when checking that agreement box, F-Secure included a "Herod clause" - one that offered up free Wi-Fi in exchange for the company's permanent ownership of the user's firstborn child.
The experiment was intended to highlight the dangers of connecting to unknown Wi-Fi networks, the Guardian reports. While only six people clicked through the Herod clause, another 33 devices connected once the researchers removed all Terms and Conditions. Meanwhile, users left their personal data - including passwords - completely vulnerable to the network.
So. It may behoove you to READ for the sake of the CHILDREN.
