As you likely already know, working from home or the road is more challenging than working from the office, especially if you want to remain secure and keep your data protected. Have you ever used the public Wi-Fi at a coffee shop or elsewhere? From your experience, which Wi-Fi network provides the safest connection:
- Starbucks Wi-Fi
- XFINITY 🔒
Only Secured Wi-Fi networks provide potentially safe connections. As Anthony shared, any of those unsecured networks could be setup by hackers to appear legitimate, but instead be designed to install spyware or key log your computer. Make sure you always use a VPN to connect to your office even over secured, public Wi-Fi networks.
Did you know you can use your cell phone as a secure Wi-Fi hotspot, creating your very own Wi-Fi network? Utilizing your personal hotspot is your best, safest bet. If you need help setting one up on your device, please let me know and I’ll show you.
