On Public Wi-Fi Hotspots
The best way to ensure that all your Internet traffic and website login credentials are safe when using unencrypted networks is to connect to a Virtual Private Network (VPN). It prevents others on the local network from seeing any of your Internet traffic. Check with your employer if they offer VPN connections. If not, you can use a VPN service, such as the free Hotspot Shield for your computer or iPhone; or ProXPN for your computer, iPhone, and other mobile devices. On smartphones using the Android OS, consider using the SSH Tunnel app.
