I hope this is the right section to ask my questions. They are few actually. Now i am bit behind with networking so please excuse me if the questions sound stupid or illogical ;)


1. If someone is connected to your router, but does not know the admin password, can he steal your cookies and all other possible things that could get stolen, or he need to have admin access to be able to do that?


2. If someone steals your cookies/credentials for facebook for example, and than you check your login history, will the kidnapper's IP address shows or when he steals them he steals your identity and you will see your own IP. Or to simplify the question- if he steals my network credentials will he be logged with his IP or mine? Because for example, when i switch my phone from wifi to mobile network (tgat changes my ip), when i check my facebook  login history later it says Web Session updated and shows the new IP? Also when i terminate (log out), will that also log out the kidnapper's device if he is using my cookies/credentials?


3. If you have router, but you are only connected through cable (not connected to the wifi), does the router still intercepts all your info? 


4. Can someone steal your cookies/credentials from your router if he is not in your router area?


Thanks for the time
