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.
If you have an android device then you can check out the wifi analyzer app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.farproc.wifi.analyzer&feature=nav_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDMsImNvbS5mYXJwcm9jLndpZmkuYW5hbHl6ZXIiXQ..

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.
