When traveling abroad, the use of free Wi-Fi in hotels can significantly save money on mobile communications, but experts believe that it is unsafe.
According to the British edition of The Sun, free public Wi-Fi networks can be easily hacked by hackers. Attackers are capable of stealing bank card details or gaining access to personal accounts and pages on social networks when the user enters a password or makes purchases online.
Therefore, it is safest to avoid entering pages that require a password. And hotel customers can safely “just surf the web or check the latest news”.
Experts point out that a VPN can help protect your data. When using it, the data is encrypted, so “you can enter the network without risking becoming a victim of scammers.”
