I have (on occasion) come across some pretty funny and even convincing WiFi SSID names in my day. So for fun, I figured I would see if any ATS'ers have their own funny names for their wireless routers. I change mine periodically and currently have it set to this:


(sometimes I change Surveillance to Armed... haha)

There are a number of websites that have collected various interesting SSID names that people have made, some aren't T&C friendly but there are quite a few that are pretty funny and original...

Just look at this Google Search and you'll see what I mean: Funny WiFi Names

Here is a website where they actually vote on the best ones (subjective as that may be however
I've seen better) with over a hundred pages of different WiFi names.


Funny WiFi Wireless Network Names

A collection of creative, crazy and funny WiFi wireless network names others have found by viewing available wireless networks in their area.


There are a handful of other sites that have compiled their favorites so I figured why not ATS.

This one has always been a pretty funny one to me...if you live in an apartment (flat for you UK'ers).



A good place to look for possible funny WiFi names as well is on your phone. Look at the WiFi names that have been stored as you've traversed day to day.

So how about it ATS, what is your SSID name?


Note:


For those unfamiliar with what their SSID is or how to go about changing it, please familiarize yourself with the process before attempting to rename your SSID.

I named mine NSA Surveillance Van. Some friends came to stay with me and Obama was here in Hawaii at the time. They thought it was actually the NSA and I had them going for a day before I told them it was mine. Pretty funny

I have read some very funny SSID names, I like yours as well!
Mine isn't funny, however, one of my favorites I read in a thread here on ATS is..
"PrettyFlyForAWifi" haha

I don't know about those kinds of names guys...

I know that impersonating a law enforcement official is against the law. Representing your wifi as some kind of official government hot spot might not be the best idea...

So many people do it now that it now that it's not surprising anymore. At least 3 SSID's in my apartment complex are named things like "NSA Surveillance" or similar names.

If you think about it, it only helps the government. If they actually had a van in the area, nobody would believe their wifi name.

I have a friend that calls his "WI-FE"... he is a single guy, but as an IT professional he does a lot of work from home... being "married" to his job, it sure is appropriate

My personal favorite:

"Wifi gone. I left it unlocked."

I should get some credit for that one. So many places I could have gone, but thankfully, I'm not as politically incorrect with my jokes as some of these clowns...you know who you are...

The best part is- I get that!


We never have anything interesting, but I bet I could get my dad to change it to something funny.
