CBS Accidentally Airs Super Bowl Security's Wi-Fi Password

February 3, 2014

During the pre-game coverage for NFL Super Bowl XLVIII, television news inadvertently broadcast the stadium's internal Wi-Fi login credentials.

According to Mobile Sports Report, the in-stadium Wi-Fi network at MetLife Stadium, built by Verizon, is free and open to customers of all carriers.

The credentials accidentally broadcast on TV were likely an internal set of Wi-Fi access credentials, possibly for staff, press or ticketing systems, said ZNet.
