Short FAQ – How Do I Stay Safe When Using Public Wi-Fi?
Question: I've heard it can be dangerous to use public Wi-Fi, but sometimes I need to connect when I'm out and about. Are there steps I can take to do it safely?
Answer: Before you even get to a Wi-Fi location, take these three steps: make sure your software patches are up to date; set up two-factor authentication on services (like Facebook) that allow it; and make sure all your passwords are complex and difficult to guess. Then, when you get to the Wi-Fi location, verify with someone at the establishment that the network you're using is legitimate. Next, turn off file sharing for your device (how you do this will depend on which operating system you use). Once you're on the network, check for "https://" at the beginning of URLs to ensure you're using secure websites. Finally, when you're ready to log off, set your device to not "connect automatically" to the network again.
