    All wifi networks are expected to use security code ( and change it often ) to avoid misuse of the network , by anti social elements , exceed usage quota if any by unauthorised users.
    Even if an unsecured wifi is used, only select users can access the net ,,if Mac address white list is prepared/enabled at router settings.

    Anybody availing the facility, because it is FREE for him/her, without permission/knowledge of the wifi network owner , is simply misusing
    /stealing the facility. Legal/illegal does not arise.
