Protect Your WiFI Connection
If you're like most people, you probably use the internet in public places quite often. Whether you're at a Starbucks or other coffee shop, even in a library it's easy to access the web on your laptop or phone. However, did you know that using the internet in public can be risky? Unless you're using security to protect yourself, your connection is vulnerable to hackers and other forms of attack. In this blog post, we'll talk about why you should protect your internet connection in public, and we'll give you some tips on how to choose the best way to fit your needs.
Using WiFi in Public
WiFi can leave your computer vulnerable even when browsing secure websites such as online banking and email providers. The FBI has issued an advisory warning to users about public Wifi and how it can be used to steal your information.
Luckily there are some ways to protect yourself!
Save the online banking for home
Be careful when visiting websites that contain your personal and sensitive information. Online banking is one of the most common. It’s best that you use your own personal and password-protected networks rather than using an open network in public.
Use a VPN
When you use a VPN, your traffic is routed through an encrypted tunnel, making it much more difficult for someone to track your activities or steal your data. In addition, a VPN can allow you to access blocked websites and content from around the world.
Use antivirus software
Antivirus software can protect you from phishing scams. Phishers often use malware or viruses to infect people's computers in order to steal their personal information. By using antivirus software, you can protect yourself from these types of attacks.
Now You Know! It is very important to protect yourself while using the internet and even more when you're on a public network. Share this article with your friends and protect them too!
