HOW TO STAY SAFE WHEN USING PUBLIC WI-FI

May 8, 2019

Most people tend to work from remote, public locations a few times a week. If you’re akin to hanging out at your local Starbucks and prepping your sermon, you could be risking a data breach without really knowing it. One of the most common ways that hackers can access your data is through a ‘man in the middle’ attack. The hacker finds a security flaw in the cafe or shopping center’s router, and exploits it to access the data that passes between you and the hub. To reduce the chances of getting ‘man-in-the-middled’, you need to check whether the public network you want to use is secured or unsecured before you join it. A quarter of all public Wi-Fi hotspots are entirely unencrypted. So, only use networks that require a log-in and password.
