There is a lot of talk about hiding IP, avoiding browsing fingerprinting, going to Linux etc.
However, are there any articles, topics or your thoughts how wi-fi name/identification is connected to internet privacy?
Let’s assume 2 computers, prepared for privacy to some degree, are running under one home wi-fi network (and I assume this wi-fi is also identificable by some number).
Who sees wi-fi name/number?
Who collect this info and store outside your computer?
I assume that if Windows is installed on both computers, than basically Microsoft can know that 2 computers are in the same home.
Is this information collected by Microsoft via telemery (probably nobody knows)?
If I would use Skype on Linux (one computer) and Windows on other, can Microsoft still connects 2 computers?
What about browser?
Is e.g. Mozilla or Chromium see wi-fi name/number (on Windows or Linux)?
If yes I assume it is not provided to any website and since it’s open source code it is not send anywhere?
What about VPNs programs? If I install one VPN on Linux computer and than on Windows on other computer, is particullar VPN still knows it’s probably the same home network/user?
What about online games etc.?
Btw, is there any point to change wi-fi name from time to time or it does not matter since it’s number (I’m newbie here) is unchanged?
Is cable network less identificable?
