There seems to be free Wi-fi just about everywhere. It’s a great way for a business to get people to come in and spend some money. As laptops and pads become smaller, we will probably see that growth continue.
When using a Wi-Fi hotspot, only log in or send personal information to websites that you know are fully encrypted. The entire visit to each site should be encrypted from log-in until log-out. If you think you’re logged in to an encrypted site but find yourself on an unencrypted page, log out right away.
Don’t stay permanently signed in to accounts. After using an account, log out.
Don’t use the same password on different websites. It could give someone who gains access to one account access to many accounts.
What what you are doing. Passwords, vigilance, and keeping an eye on safety is the best way to protect yourself.
