How Safe is Public Wi-Fi ? | Use Hotspot Shield

How Safe is Public WiFi | Get Behind the Shield

I am a Hotspot Shield Ambassador. All opinions are my own.

My husband and I love to people watch. After a long dinner full of chatter we will sit back, relax, enjoy each other’s company and people watch. I’ve been noticing more and more lately how “connected” people have become. Cell phones, laptops, and tablets… everywhere and anywhere. More and more businesses are offering open free wi-fi as well. But have you seriously sat down to think just how safe your information is when you use public wi-fi?

I’m not saying don’t use it… heck I do it often! McDonalds while the kids play, Panera trying to catch up on my work, my daughter’s dance company while she has her classes twice a week, and even at the airport.

I just never really thought about how safe my information was while I was connected to these hot spots.

Airport hotspots are notoriously popular with travelers and hackers.

Did you know that there’s at least one identity theft a day…especially in public hotspots and wi-fi locations…
That’s why I just downloaded Hotspot Shield Elite. It fully protects and manages your information and identity in a few easy steps.

Seeing just how much information comes in and out of my laptop in only 4 hours makes me wish I had signed up sooner! Hotspot Shield not only protects your data but also provide you with a completely secure environment for all your online activities, anywhere, anytime.

Now, with just a click of the download button I am protected on up to five (5) devices. I will soon be downloading it on my Lenovo Yoga, my iPad Mini and my Windows Tablet… all of my most portable devices as well as my HP Envy AiO desktop that the kids use often.

Don’t get caught with your shield down!

    great information to know.

  2. I’ve been wondering about this, especially at our local gym. I’ll definitely have to take a closer look at this program.

  3. Wow I would never have giving it a thought if it wasn’t for this post. I don’t know why. I should of for sure. I have only used a hotspot twice in my life. After reading this I guess that’s a good thing. I guess if I’m going to be traveling and using hotel or airport hotspots I’ll have to make sure I’m protected first with Hotspot Sheild. Thanks for sharing this info.

    I have used McDonalds and the hospitals and thats about it, I dont use a cellphone that has wifi but it would be dangerous if you used wifi alot.

  9. Julie Wood says

    I do not use Public Wifi because it is not safe and I can not have my identity stolen. I have heard so many bad stories about people losing their identities from using Public Wifi, but HotSpot Shield Elite sounds like a great program to keep a laptop safe in public, I will have to look into it.
