This Odd Network Name Can Temporarily Break an iPhone’s Wi-Fi

Apple customers might want to be extra cautious about using public hotspots for a while, because connecting to a network with a specific identifier can reportedly break the Wi-Fi on an iPhone.

Secret Club founder Carl Schou says connecting to his personal network with the SSID in question—”%p%s%s%s%s%n”—”permanently disabled” his iPhone’s Wi-Fi. He also shared a video showing his device automatically disabling Wi-Fi every time he attempted to re-enable it in the Settings app.
