    Welcome!

    If you are referring to the networks that pop up on your iPad settings when your iPad is searching for a network, than yes...many networks will appear. While those other networks appear does not mean that you can gain access to it. The signal of others may be picked up, but not necessarily one that you can join. If it has a padlock symbol behind it, it require a password to join.

    So what Poisonivy has stated ...above. Your home network hopefully has the same encryption and password security on it so others cannot "borrow" your wifi.

    By the way...I just deleted your other post as it was a duplicate of this one. Please do not do this since it makes it hard for other members to read and help you of there are multiple threads of the same topic present. It is also against forum rules.
