Many people holiday traveling usually take the time to finish up last minute work at the airport or subway station. It is important to take precautions when connecting to public Wi-Fi because public Wi-Fi networks are usually not secure. The best preventive measure is to use a VPN while connected to public networks. A VPN is a virtual private network that secures connection between business offices and remote devices, and it encrypts and shares data over a secure connection. If you don’t invest in a VPN, it is recommended to avoid using public Wi-Fi if you are able to. If it is unavoidable, it is wise to avoid going on any sensitive websites such as banking, checking emails, and online shopping.
