Hackers fake Public Wi-Fi Networks to Access your phone and other devices.
Beware of public Wi-Fi networks as hackers are spoofing free Wi-Fi locations in coffee shops, restaurants and other places to get into your mobile phone.It’s extremely easy, especially when you have your device set to automatically connect to available networks. You’re giving access to unscrupulous people even when you aren’t using your phone!
Public Wi-Fi is an excellent service that often dictates where we do business, yet it exposes us in ways we've not thought out. That’s why we must do everything we can to avoid hackers gaining access to our connected devices.
Keep your devices as locked down as you can by investing in encryption programs for at risk data. Programs such as Knox are highly secure vaults that keep hackers from gaining access to credit card information, private documents and personal photos.
Use caution when connecting to public Wi-Fi networks with both company & personal devices, and be wary of the 7-year-old sitting next to you with a serious look, staring at a computer screen. That little girl might be infiltrating your network as you're reading this now!
