Title: MANAGING SHARING OF WIRELESS NETWORK LOGIN PASSWORDS
Abstract:
Managing sharing of wireless network login passwords is disclosed. A password sharing request is received from a terminal (10), wherein the request includes a first identifying information of a wireless network (30). An authentication code is sent to the terminal, wherein the authentication code is to be configured as a newly configured login password associated with the wireless network. After having configured the authentication code as a new password the terminal transmits a feedback response. The feedback response includes second identifying information of the wireless network (30) and the newly configured login password. In the event that the first identifying information matches the second identifying information and the authentication code matches the newly configured login password, it is assumed that the terminal is an administrative terminal associated with the wireless network. In that case, the identifying information and the newly configured login password are stored (105).
