If I log into my wifi at work can they potentially access any info on my iPhone, see how long I access wifi in a typical workday,etc.....?

They will be able to see your device logged in but not any info on your device unless they are crazy hackers. They can tell when you are logged into the wifi and monitor that time.

Not unless they're crazy hackers, as he said. Otherwise, they can only see you're using the wifi, not what you're doing on it.

Just out of curiosity, why do you think someone would want to take the time and effort to hack the wifi to read your emails & texts? Are they super secret operations stuff?

With big brother always watching how would one know why...? I just figure I ask how hard it would be. In the call center I work in they monitor every keystroke I press.

Yeah, because you're using their computer system.

I'm positive it's not a big brother conspiracy to steal your secret messages. I'm sure that they monitor your keystrokes to ensure accuracy and customer satisfaction at said call center. I'm certain it's safe for you to use the wifi without getting "hacked".

it's a union environment also. But the big thing for me to not lose my 3G data speeds. Only way to do that is by using wifi at work for my radio streaming.
