06 Dec Stay Safe on Public Wi-Fi
We’re pleased to share another video we created in collaboration with AARP Fraud Watch Network. This short video, called Stay Safe on Public Wi-Fi, packs a lot of helpful information into a couple of entertaining minutes.
In case you thought it was always safe to connect to public wifi, think again. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issues a warning on their website:
Wi-Fi hotspots in coffee shops, libraries, airports, hotels, universities, and other public places are convenient, but often they’re not secure. If you connect to a Wi-Fi network, and send information through websites or mobile apps, it might be accessed by someone else.
