In today’s society, 5G network technology has gradually entered everyone’s life, from the simplest communication to smart cars, artificial intelligence, traffic signals to the medical field, military industry and so on. All aspects of 5G network technology can be used to greatly improve the convenience of people’s lives and the technological transformation of human society. However, there are many countries, companies and people who are not so sure about 5G technology, and who may even abandon its use because of concerns about its security. As a result, this thesis focuses on the benefits and drawbacks of 5G technology’s security in networks, as well as its application in everyday life and potential security threats, as well as whether its security will escalate from a cyber-level attack to physical harm to humans or facilities when combined with the Internet of Things. The analysis of current articles, data, and expert opinion will help to produce findings that will address the concerns of those who are sceptical about the security of 5G. In this regard, it is concluded that the safety of 5G network technology requires a warning, but at this stage, its convenience and safety are within human control and can be used with confidence.
