The Wi-Fi Alliance announced a new security standard, , which will be available on both personal and business Wi-Fi networks soon.

According to reports, WPA3 will protect users against hackers better than WPA2, as the new standard brings over enhanced protections against offline, password-guessing attacks. Should a hacker capture your Wi-Fi to use it offline in an attempt to guess passwords over and over, WPA3 will render that useless and only allow a single guess.

- 1x1 - Wi-Fi Is About To Get Faster And More Secure With WPA3

“Wi-Fi authentication has come a long way since the early days of wireless networking. Professionals have made it clear that they understand the need for things like strong authentication and authorisation controls for network clients, built-in reauthentication, and identity proofing through the design of the new WPA3 protocol.

“However, to put the problem simply, there are just too many wireless clients today that will require updates to support the new protocol, and a significant percentage of those devices may never be able to support the new standard. While the move to WPA3 is good and illustrates a design, it will be a while before the effects of the new, more wireless authentication protocol are truly felt.”
