How can I know if a WiFi’s security is WEP, WPA or WPA2?

    Using WEP/WPA/WPA2 on the wireless access point or router: Most wireless access points and routers today allow you to select during setup the security protocol to be used. Unfortunately, the default in many wireless devices is WEP--or, worse, nothing. If you are setting up your own network, make sure you use WPA2 or at least WPA.

    You may try to download and install Inssider if you want a detailed description like wireless security, Signal and channel.

    (assuming that you do not own the connection)
    when you scroll ur mouse over the wifi network- it shows it's security type.
    (assuming that you own the connection)
    log into your router and see the security setup

    If your password is numerical, and maybe not set by you, it's Probably WEP. If not it's WPA or WPA2, probably WPA2

    When you try to connect to a network, it makes you enter the password, which tells you what type of password key it is.
