On Are You Protected from Hackers on Public WiFi? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Thanks for your question, Bob. You are correct that all banks (and many other websites) use SSL to encrypt data. However, SSL isn't as secure as we think. There have been numerous studies that have found vulernabilities with this technology. A VPN, however, is more secure.

On Facebook's "Free" WiFi Could Cost You More Than a Check-in

Cayenne:

You are very correct: all open WiFi networks are insecure. This is just another example that public WiFi networks are in fact PUBLIC; anyone can see what you send/receive unless you use a VPN.

On Facebook's "Free" WiFi Could Cost You More Than a Check-in

Hi JC:

Thanks for your question. All WiFi networks are inherently insecure, so without a VPN your data would be open to anyone who had the software to "sniff" it. Checking in with FourSquare and Yelp will also give the business access to a few data points that are associated with your profile information. 

If you have any further questions, just ask. For more information about PRIVATE WiF's VPN, check us out here: http://www.privatewifi.com/
