Public Wi-Fi safety: 1 in 4 people have experienced a security issue from browsing on unsecured networks

Associate Professor Justin Cappos was asked for his expert insight on public Wi-Fi risks and safety precautions: “With public Wi-Fi, anybody on the network can see and interfere with what everyone else is doing. … Things that are more sensitive, like banking, logging into your email, or logging into your social media accounts, an attacker can potentially gain control of those while connected to a public network,” cautioned Cappos.
