From the Workbench...

It’s summer time and many delayed visits & vacations are finally happening. 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. Who doesn't like 'free'? Yet using unsecured WiFi hotspots, expose you to cyber crooks if we realize it or not. They could potentially gain your login information to sites or other input details and use that data. 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. (Please refer to the last couple months newsletters for more info on passwords.)
6. Use different passwords for every online account.
7. Avoid checking ‘Remember me’, ‘Remember password’, ’Keep me logged in’ boxes.
8. Always manually select WiFi networks. Do not let your computer 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 or phone’s antivirus software is up-to-date, and so are its 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!
