Follow these simple tips to defend yourself against unsecured WiFi security risks:1. Be Aware.
Attacks occur both on your laptops and mobile devices.
2. Be Suspicious.
Stay cautious while browsing, and never connect to an obscure or unknown wireless access point.
3. Play in safe.
Consult about the correct name of the particular location's WiFi network. This small precautionary step may protect you from connecting to a “trap" network, designed to lure unsuspecting visitors and their personal information.
4. Use a VPN.
This will prevent lurking hackers from successfully mining your data. Using Virtual Private Network ensures that your online activity is routed through an encrypted secure server controlled by the BPN company.
5. Enable Firewall.
Before you connect to an unsecured network, make sure it is enabled.
6. Protect your email account.
Routers not only provide you with an internet connection but also store data. So your email login data can be stored in the router while you're connected to a public WiFi. Two Factor Authentication is a great solution. This adds an extra layer of security to your account by not allowing new devices to connect to your account without a very specific piece of information that only you have.
