Hi,
I noticed that my Chromecast Wi-Fi icon is not secured I mean it looks open unlike my router Wi-Fi connection.
Does that mean that any of my neighbor could use my Wi-Fi ?

If your Wi-Fi is password protected your fine.

The chromecast wifi network is only used for the initial setup of the device. Once you've given the chromecast your home wifi information it will use that instead. If your home wifi is secure, the chromecast won't change that.
