How safe are WiFi hotspots when you are trav­el­ling? Be­ware, some of those free, un­locked con­nec­tions might be un­safe. Hack­ers can set up un­se­cured WiFi hotspots in pub­lic places while you are un­know­ingly giv­ing them ac­cess to your com­puter, pass­words and on­line ac­counts. Check with ho­tels and cof­feeshops for their of­fi­cial WiFi. Be­fore you leave home, you can en­crypt your on­line ac­tiv­ity us­ing a vir­tual pri­vate net­work (VPN).
