About Public WiFi Security Risks
Public wifi usage has been increasing exponentially in the recent years due to its convenience and accessibility. It has become so easy to go online from just about anywhere: coffee shops, airports, public libraries, and hotel rooms, among many other places. However, many people are not aware the security risks inherent in using a public wifi network.
Wifi networks do not use physical cables to connect computers to one another. Instead, they use radio waves. This means that when you connect to a public network, you are basically exposing your laptop files, including personal data such as credit card information, passwords, and social security number, to anyone within that network. This development has led to a different type of hacking called “sniffing.” A sniffer is a computer tool that doesn't require physical access to your computer. With the right software, easily available on the Internet, hackers can use sniffers to steal any unencrypted data on a public wifi network. It might even be the guy sipping his coffee at the table right next to you.
