How many wireless devices do you have? Personally I have a laptop, iPhone and iPad and I use all of the on public Wifi all the time. However, if you don’t take your precautions that can be a very dangerous thing to do.
See the thing is, that once you are connected to a wifi hotspot it is very easy for other users to collect the data traffic and find your password and login info when you log on to websites. Imagine someone having access to your Facebook profile, gmail account, net bank or Paypal? Not a pleasant thought is it?
Make Sure Your Private Data Stays Private
I love Wifi just as must as the next guy, but in order to make sure your private data remains private you have to protect yourself. The way to do that is to use a VPN account. VPN stand for Virtual Private Network and what it does it create a secure connection between you and a server at a VPN-provider. That might sound very technical but it is not hard at all to set up.
A VPN connection will basically to make sure that no one can get access to your data when you are surfing on a Wifi hotspot. That could be in an airport, Starbucks, Hotel or any other place.
How to get a VPN account
In order to get a VPN account you need to sign up with a provider. This is not free but it is money very well spent. Imagine for a moment the amount of money you spend to secure and insure your material things? These days our digital lives require the same respect.
A VPN account is not expensive at all. The best provider on the market is Unlocator and they have a great package at $11 pr. Month. That is a pretty cheap way to secure my private data if you ask me.
Unlocator has 24/7 online support and once you have signed up they will send you a mail describing the setup process that is very easy. You can set it up on most smartphones, all laptops and most tablets.
