Timely Traveler Tips for Wireless Safety
« on: August 29, 2014, 12:05:27 PM »
Will you be traveling out of town this holiday weekend?

Warning: There is an invisible security threat that you will encounter on your next vacation. No matter where you are going or when, you will likely encounter WiFi on your journey. While the convenience of such a connection is alluring to any vacationer, understanding the dangers associated with using that wireless hotspot are paramount.

Remember that WiFi is just radiowaves and anyone can listen in to anything you send and receive on that connection. So whether you are using WiFi at your hotel, the airport, or a tourist attraction, you can potentially be exposed. If you are checking your bank account, reserving a hotel room, or even booking a plane ticket, that sensitive data is vulnerable.
