Do This Whenever You Use Airport Wi-Fi

Free airport Wi-Fi is a great perk for travelers but it can also be a fertile hunting ground for cybercriminals.

A few criminals have begun labeling their own copycat Wi-Fi networks as “free airport Wi-Fi” in order to get unsuspecting travelers to log on so they can hack their information.

According to the L.A. Times, here are a few things that you can do to make it more difficult for the criminals.

#1-Create hard to guess passwords, and change them often. 

#2- Check to make sure that the websites you are using begin with an "https:" address marker and have a lock symbol to the left of them

#3 Check for misspellings or poor grammar on the website. These are usually signs that it could be fake.

#4 Consider using a VPN (virtual private network) to access your office computers

#5 Use your own hotspot. Using your own wi-fi cuts out the potential of strangers snooping in on your connection.
