Free and legally accessible wireless networks around metropolitan areas of the world are becoming a common occurrence. This is theoretically enabling end-users to conform to "always-online" societal behaviours and thus reducing the financial burden of using purchased mobile data. The availability of freely accessible wireless networks may encompass a number of security questions such as, can the wireless network be trusted, is the transmitted data stored or compromised by a third party, and do freely accessible wireless networks set a precedence for end-users to consciously attempt to connect to any or all wireless networks in their vicinity? This ethically approved research assessed end-user's behaviour as they attempted to connect to untrusted wireless networks. The presentation will discuss the approach used to gain insight into this problem and present the results of two separate iterations of this research undertaken during 2016 in the Western Australian metropolitan area.
