A priest in Poland contacts a neighbour to change the name of his Wi-Fi network…from Lucifer to something “appropriate”.


Lucifer appeared in the church of St. Mary Magdalene in Poland. Not personally though – it is displayed in the list of available Wi-Fi networks. With this name, the first neighbors troll the priest and his parishionmers. Priests and parishioners are appalled and call for a Wi-Fi network name change.

To show that they are serious about their request they sent a letter signed by 10 people-“The parish of Saint Mary Magdalene, to whom I am a priest, is asking you to change the name of your Wi-Fi network to another one”. This is how the priest’s letter, published by a Twitter user, begins.

The said network is called “Lucifer” – explained in the letter – and since the building of its administrator borders the church, this name is also displayed in the devices of priests and visitors.


The priest explains that the name of the network is “hurting their religious feelings“. He also hopes that the owner of the router will “amicably make the appropriate change.” Finally, he offers free technical assistance in this case.
