TIP #1: WATCH OUT FOR FAKE WI-FI HOTSPOTS
We all love free Wi-Fi provided by hotels, airports and coffee shops, but beware of hackers who set up fake Wi-Fi hotspots. They’ll get you connected, then steal your information. Be sure to check the authenticity of any Wi-Fi connection, and don’t use public Wi-Fi for anything related to personal finance, such as checking your account balances or making transactions or payments. And if you need to work on a public Wi-Fi, encrypt all your data by connecting through your company’s Virtual Private Network (VPN).
TIP #2: LOCK UP YOUR WI-FI!
Keep hackers from compromising your home or work Wi-Fi by making sure it’s secured with password access. When setting up your Wi-Fi, remember not to use personal information in the password or network name to keep it anonymous and more secure.
