Hi there, I'm planning to buy that Vantec NexStar WiFi hard drive dock, so any information about how that could be done and how can I prevent that from happening would be appreciated. Many thanks in advance!

Hi Mad!

Those Wi-Fi enabled data storages becoming really popular these days, but that NexStar hard drive dock seems to be the most convenient among them. It is so because you can simply plug just any SATA hard drive and all the people you allow can access all that data via their Wi-Fi module. So the drive will be accessible for not only other PC's and notebooks, but also for smartphones and tablets. Also thanks to it you can sync your smart TV with the dock and play video from out there.

The security of those device is doubtful and that's why jammer-store.com does not recommend you to use them for saving valuable or sensitive data. As you know Wi-Fi networks use radio frequencies to transmit data between work stations. NexStar uses 802.11n wireless standard and the frequency it uses is 2.4 GHz. You should know that the signals of that wireless network spreads in all directions around the router and the network itself is reachable from outside your house.

The nest thing to consider is that the Wi-Fi is vulnerable. The encryption protocols your network uses can be hacked. That's why it is critical to make sure that your wireless network can't be reached from outside your house, because in that case evildoers may try to crack it and infect all the devices connected to the network with malicious applications and steal the data stored on them. So not only the drive itself may be in danger, but also your smartphone, or a tablet. You can limit the spreading of the wireless network by using a Wi-Fi jammer, that will prevent hackers form cracking your Wi-Fi network and your data will be safe.

Thanks for your question, I hope I've managed to help.
