#3 Free Public WiFi? Think Again

The 3rd episode of our weekly podcast ‘Conversation with a Hacker’. Non-technical podcast about privacy, security and other mysteries. From an ex-professional hacker.

‘Beware of free public WiFi’
Ever felt like connecting to the airport’s free WiFi while waiting for your flight? Or connecting to your local Starbucks' WiFi? Think again.

In this episode, Greg recommends you NOT to connect to your airport’s free WiFi, or any public WiFi in general, as it is very insecure. It makes us not only very vulnerable to being hacked, but also makes data collection on us pretty easy.

Instead, use your phone data if you can, or at the very least use a VPN when connecting (e.g. ‘ProtonVPN’: https://protonvpn.com).
