How can you use public Wi-Fi and keep your data secure? Is it possible to get one account for all your devices; and how can you get pictures from a tablet onto a PC?
A With the rise of smartphones, tablets and laptops, it has become increasingly common to use public Wi-Fi without thinking about security and privacy. Most people dont understand how easily data can be intercepted. Wi-Fi networks that dont have passwords dont encrypt data, so it is relatively easy using freely available software to view information being sent to the website, and back to you. You can protect yourself by routing your data through a virtual private network (VPN), a secure tunnel that operates over a public network. Your connection to the network is encrypted, along with all your data.
