Who doesn’t like FREE public Wi-Fi?
The risk is that not every Wi-Fi network you access is ‘genuine’ and once you’re on their network, they can see absolutely everything you do… including your passwords and account details.
A man-in-the-middle attack is when data shared from a computer to a server is intercepted.
Shared Wi-Fi networks are handy but not always completely secure. Not every Wi-Fi network you access is ‘genuine’, hackers sometimes create fake Wi-Fi networks. Once you are logged on, they can watch your every move.
How to manage the risk
- Use your mobile device’s data instead of public Wi-Fi.
- If you need to log onto public Wi-Fi, then consider purchasing a VPN.
