Don't be paranoid

Unless you know that your neighbor is a hacker and you are terribly paranoid, I would not be concerned about them seeing the content of your emails. It takes an above average computer user with a lot of knowledge and access to hacking tools to accomplish what you are concerned about. Also, if you think that they may think you handle super secret data in your daily routine, don't use their Wi-Fi!

I agree.

Hacking the way you described would take an above average computer user for it to happen. If you are really concerned that this is something that they can do, just stop using their wifi and just use data.

Suggestion maybe.

I understand your worries because the easiest way is a WPS attack, i would say to stop this-just disable WPS within your router settings. Another way is brute force, most routers from ISP will use same combination of characters for example Virgin UK routers are 8 lowercase letters excluding i and o. While there is no way to prevent a brute force attack you can make it alot harder. What i have learnt over the years is that best way to prevent these attacks are to have a passphrase of at minimum 5 words. Diceware is a pretty okay method of creating passphrases.

Unless your neighbor is a hacker, you wouldn't need to worry about them accessing info in your email or your messenger. It's definitely ok to be paranoid, but your neighbor is the least of your worries.

Hacking In Isnt That Easy

Even if you were able to hack them and have the knowledge im still confused why you want to hack them but secondly it is illegal to hack someone's personal computer without their consent or knowledge of it happening so.

Totally yes

Of course there exists the possibility you have thought. You connect their wifi and then disclose your information. But don't be nervous. Though you expelled your information, but not anyone can get it. 99% can not get your information. Rome can not be built in one day, so does the hacker.Most of the people are plain,hardly exists hacker as your neighbors. You are not obviously enough to make your neighbor spend so much time and spirit to catch with, if you are not a star who are curious about by her fans .
