Is Public WiFi Safe?


FIRST CHAIR TECH TIP: Always be careful when using public WiFi as it is generally very insecure. Even if the network contains a password to get into, other people on the network could see and possibly steal your information. The best way to avoid any problems is to simply not use public WiFi, but if you are in a pinch there are some tricks that you can do to make yourself a little bit more secure. First of all, turn off sharing while on the public network and use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to both hide and prevent others from seeing your information. Also try to use only safe sites that start with https at the beginning of the domain name (URL).
