    The lock symbol next to your wifi network shows that it is a secured network. A secure network requires a password for availing internet access. There are usually two kinds of passwords. WEP password and WPA password. WEP password means it is a combination of numbers alone. WPA password is an alphanumeric one. Unsecured networks will not have a lock symbol next to it near the name of wireless networks.

    the lock symbol shows that you're on a secure network, which means that you'll have to provide a password to access the internet.

    Hello Friend,

    It simply means that you are connected to a secured Network and would require authentication credentials to log you on to that network.You can't connect to the Network until and unless you enter password of that Network.

    Hope It Helps!

    Thanks and visit again

    hi friend,
    When the network is secured you can see a lock symbol and for those things you have to give password

    The lock symbol shows that it is a secured network.
    A secure network requires a password for interacting with internet access.
    There are usually two kinds of passwords i.e. WEP password and WPA password.
    WEP password means it is a combination of numbers alone.
    WPA password is an alphanumeric one.

    Don't worry buddy,

    It is because of internet security authentication.

    It is showing for entering the security data to enter for accessing the internet.

    Lock symbol indicates that your screen of the ipad is locked and in locking process no key will work until it is unlocked So it means that ipad is locked and then if you unlock the device using key then the locked screen icon will be disappeared from the screen.So unlock the device to remove that symbol from the display of the ipad.
