About Public WiFi Security Risks
Public wifi usage has been increasing exponentially in the recent years due to its convenience and accessibility. It has become so easy to get on the Internet from just about anywhere: coffee shops, airports, public libraries, and hotel rooms, among many other places. However, many people are not aware the security risks inherent in using a public wifi network.
Wifi networks do not use physical cables to connect computers to one another. Instead, they use radio waves. This means that when you connect to a public network, you are basically exposing your laptop files, including personal data such as credit card info, passwords, and social security number, to anyone within that network. This type of cybercrime has led to a different type of hacking called “sniffing.” Sniffers are computer tools that don’t require physical access to your computer. With the right software, easily available on the Internet, hackers can use sniffers to steal any unencrypted data on a public wifi network. It may even be the guy sipping his coffee at the table right next to you.
