So I discovered my schools wifi password the teachers use because somebody told me it. Is it okay if I use it because it's just me using it so can they track my device and get me in trouble? I mean my school is pretty stupid but can they track me?

Yes they can, connecting to your school wireless will record several pieces of information about your computer, your computer mac address which is unique to your computer, the time it connected, the ip addressed it was assigned, also the can track your on line activity as well if the network is being monitored, they can capture all the packets leaving and arriving at your computer, so if your don't have authorization i wouldn't connect as you may be in breach of any local computer laws, like the UK computer misuse act unauthorized access

IP address the router assigned to it. They can see every web site you go to. All traffic from your computer through the router. That MAC address also tells them who made your computer's network interface card. No, you should NOT use it. If they wanted you to use it, they would have given you the password yourself. They will see your MAC address and IP address, as well as the links you visit.

It depends on the school district. If it's anywhere in the southern states of USA you got a problem. Any other country that is advanced is probably going to be able to track you. Of course if you go on private mode in your browser you can't be tracked

Yes, they can. They can also see what websites you went to. Using their password, is a crime. So if you want to go to jail or juvenile detention center until you are 18, do not use it. Throw it away, forget it.

Sure they can track the users of their server. They will see your MAC address and IP address, as well as the links you visit.
Who:
yes – and it dont take much to track it to a specific computer/owner

The school may be pretty stupid but they are smarter than you
Andy T:
Of course that can be done.
