Video: Public WiFi Insecurity, Hackers, and Why a Personal VPN Is So Important

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

The problem of hacking and wireless crime is only getting worse, and getting worse fast, according to a local Florida news station.

This local news video warns that “if you are on an untrusted network, don’t trust it,” and that’s wise advice whether you’re traveling internationally or simply working at your local coffee shop.

Indeed, as we’ve long pointed out, WiFi hotspots are inherently unsafe and the only true protection is a personal VPN like Private WiFi. A personal VPN will encrypt your information and keep hackers from stealing what no one else should see.

 

Get Private Wifi   Protect your personal information.
Get DataCompress   Cut your mobile data usage.

    Indeed. What surprises me is that Google has araeldy figured all this out, put it in the Google Public Policy Blog, then effectively disregarded it (and actually they actively worked to counter it) for Google+.
