Public WiFi and travel

Potentially when you connect to Public WiFi without going onto VPN anyone else on that network could see:

  • Every site you visit

  • All information you send across the web (i.e. email or facebook messages)

  • Login information

You never know who is on a network and if they are snooping other users data. 

VPN is your best friend while travelling and using public WiFi connections, prior to doing anything on a new WiFi connection it should become second nature to first connect to VPN. This encrypts all your outgoing traffic preventing other users on the WiFi seeing what you are doing.
