From the Workbench....
Since its summer & some vacations happening (or staycations), we still want to stay "connected" whether by email or social sites. From coffee shops, to airports, to restaurant, most public places offer WiFi for free. We wish they were everywhere. Yet using unsecured WiFi hotspots, exposes yourself to cyber crooks if we realize it or not. They could potentially capture login information & use the data, or launch a malware attack on your device. Below are some safety tips.

Safety tips for WiFi Hotspots

1. While accessing free, unsecured WiFi hotspots, avoid accessing sites where you have to login or give away your financial information, such as social sites, email accounts, online bank accounts, online stores, etc.

2. If you should login, then prefer websites with an 'https' address. However, be warned that although these web sites may be secure, they are not foolproof.

3. If you have to carry out an urgent online banking transaction, always prefer a secure WiFi network even if you have to pay for it.

4. Disable file sharing on your computer. This minimizes the risk of an attacker to barge into the personal data on your machine.

5. Create strong passwords - avoid using dictionary words, your name, birth date or pet's name. Use uppercase letters, special characters, meaningless words or phrases.

6. Use different passwords for every online account.

7. Avoid checking 'Remember me' or 'Keep me logged in' boxes.

8. Always manually select WiFi networks. Do not let your computer (or smartphone) automatically connect to them.

9. Turn OFF WiFi when not in use, and always remember to log out.

10. Ensure that your computer's antivirus software is up-to-date, and as well as operating system, software, and Internet browsers.

So, remember that free, unsecured WiFi hotspots can be ok if you're planning on just browsing sites. Stay safe!
