– The only foolproof way to protect yourself from data theft is to use mobile traffic to make online purchases or Internet banking.
– By turning off Wi-Fi, you resolve three issues at once: rapid discharge of your battery, automatic connection to a fraudulent network, and annoying ad emails.
– VPN, or Virtual Private Network, allows you to stay anonymous while online: websites you enter will see the virtual network IP, not yours. Such networks, though, are mostly paid, and they slow down your connection.
– Most devices will automatically remember and connect to the hotspot they used at least once before. Frauds could create their own access point with the same name and thus get access to your profile data or even, with certain artifice, to your finances.
– The only difference is that an authentic hotspot requires payment or authorization/password, while a fake one is free to use. So before connecting to a free network, ask its owner for its name first.
– Always use the latest antivirus versions. There are new ways of hacking appearing almost every day, and your antivirus should stay up to date. Besides, antivirus software warns you of possible fake hotspot connections.
– A network that doesn’t require any additional actions to connect is possibly a fraudulent one. To stay on the safe side, choose a hotspot that requires you to enter a code sent as a text message to your phone. 
– If you’d still like to store passwords on your media device, at least use a password manager that encrypts information in it.
– Fake networks might also redirect you to popular websites, except those are really only collecting your personal data. If you see any weird characters in a familiar website’s URL, it most likely means that this website is not authentic.
– A safe connection is simple to identify: the URL starts with https:// instead of the usual http://. Some websites, like Google, always use a secure connection to transfer data.

  1. If u have unlimited 4G LTE & 5G data usage from your wireless provider then keep Wi-Fi off and just keep using cellular data. Cellular data is safer than free open Wi-Fi hotspots.

  2. I have free name internet with a needed password (no telling password) with it is my family's internet with is only my family can connect it also only in my location right now I can turn on my tablet

  3. No WiFi networks are safe not even ones with a password as passwords can be hacked it's all unsafe and a load piffle….mobile data is probably the safest tbh
