According to this ITWorld article, free wifi is a hacker’s dream.

As the article states, “even if the servers at the office encrypt passwords and require passwords long and complex enough to be relatively secure, they won’t keep anyone out if the same username and password that gets a user into the customer database is available in plain text across a WiFi network with four million users and a purposely unconstricted approach to security.”

In other words, use a personal VPN like Private WiFi to encrypt and protect your data in wireless hotspots like airports, hotels, and coffee shops!
