Hi Bosslady, explain what? If you meant to ask if this is a good idea the a definite no! There is a way to setup a guest account on most routers, then the account can be deleted later.

The problem is, that with the password, he can decrypt her traffic and spy on her, if he wants to.

The leach could also do nefarious things and when traced they would come back to your friend's IP address.
