A new study of 377 Americans highlights the growing concern of using public Wi-Fi Hotspots.

PRIVATE WiFi (TM) Announces its New and Innovative Facebook Page to Help Engage and Educate Consumers About the Dangers of Public WiFi
Private Communications Corporation, makers of PRIVATE WiFi, a new and innovative product in the security software market, today announced it has developed the most advanced Facebook page to date. The new Facebook page will provide consumers with a simple and sure avenue of staying informed about the dangers of using public WiFi services, all from entirely within the social network they know and love. With integrated WordPress functionality and advanced tab features, it is conveniently designed to give consumers a sense of community and engagement by allowing users to interact on topics on privacy and identity theft.
PRIVATE WiFi’s site seals add a badge of trust and security to websites that display it. Websites can choose from two seals: that the website promotes secure wifi, that the website encourages the use of a personal virtual private network (VPN). A personal VPN secures and privatizes data across a network, usually the Internet, by building an “encrypted tunnel.” Data passes through this tunnel which protects it from anyone who tries to intercept it.
