26/06/2018

With the holiday season coming up you may be visiting more public places such as airports, cafes and hotels, and increasing your need to access public Wi-Fi.

WatchGuard have given 3 top tips on the ways you can protect your data whilst on the move... 

1. It's not normal for a legitimate businesses to have multiple variations of public Wi-Fi SSIDs available. Make sure you check with staff on their Wi-Fi network name and ask them for the password.

2. If you're doing something confidential on your device, avoid exposing your private data over an unsecured connection - disable Wi-Fi and use your 4G connection instead.

3. Clear any saved Wi-Fi network names from your device(s) and disable the auto-connect feature to ensure your device doesn't connect to an unsafe environment that you might've visited without knowing.
