If you’re wondering about the difference between WiFi and MiFi, you’re not alone. Most people today have at least a basic understanding of WiFi, and how it equates to wireless Internet. But “MiFi” is a much newer term to enter the tech world, and many people are understandably scratching their heads over how it differs from the more familiar WiFi.

Overall, there isn’t a whole lot of differences between MiFi and WiFi. Basically, a MiFi device is a portable WiFi device that allows you to have wireless access from anywhere. You can plug in different devices (iPod, iPad, laptop, etc) to create your own network. To break it down, Mifi is really just “My WiFi,” in other words, your own personal WiFi device, which you can use yourself and transmit to other devices within range.

A big difference between bringing your own MiFi device and simply logging on to a WiFi system is the security. MiFi devices use airborne network coverage, as opposed to the public WiFi signals that are shared with everyone. Public WiFi signals present a security risk, because hackers and identity thieves often use them to extract private information from other users in the network. With MiFi, your network is your own, and nobody accesses it without your permission.
MiFi is a great solution for business travelers that are constantly on the move and don’t want to risk personal information on other networks. The TruConnect MiFi device is no bigger than a deck of cards, but you can transmit signals from the Sprint Nationwide Network to as many as 5 devices simultaneously.
