See the only problem is if you let people use it and they download anything illegal (say music for example) it would be traced to you and you would be liable. Yes it would be the nice thing to do to let them and maybe the parents wont abuse it but if one of the children did something on it you could get in trouble. I dont know much about computers and viruses and such but this could effect your internet safety as well potentially. So you should consider everything and if you trust them or not first.
stop being a B-itch and let them use it
I can think of two reasons why you would not want to share Internet, even if it would be cheaper for you.
Firstly, all devices in your network would be visible to their computers. This won't be as much of a problem if you use firewalls or set up a private network, but it's still a layer of security that you loose.
Second, I would not do it unless you trust them not to do anything illegal, such as pirating software. I don't know the specifics, but I believe you could be held liable if they get themselves in trouble on your Internet connection.
I would not let them share your Internet.
Don't let them use it. You want to know what to tell them? Tell them the truth, "I do not feel comfortable letting you use it. I do not feel I know you well enough." If they continue to press you or start being troublesome tell them it is illegal (whether it is or not).
By letting them use it you are making them a part of your network. This means that any shared information or peripherals ( printer, harddrives) are shared with them. So unless you want to go through the hassle of hardening your security on your computers/devices. DON'T DO IT! If they want/need it that bad high-speed internet is $40 a month. Send them a brochure. Frakin moochers...
In addition to the other reasons, it would be a violation of your contract with your ISP.
I would just say no, and explain that its not allowed.
The short answer is NO! This is very dangerous to do. Anything illegal they would do on their computer would be traced to your internet connection! Don't allow yourself to get involved with these people, no matter what they say!
Look, if you don't want them to use your wifi, then tell them.
Tell them that you don't feel comfortable if they use your internet. If they are nice people, they would understand.
No way don't let them. That's not safe put a password on your internet. You're paying for the internet they're just trying to mooch off you. It would be nice of you but it's wrong of them to want that. Put a password on your wifi
Good luck :)
