Always Use Secure Wi-Fi

In the midst of the holiday shopping season, it's crucial to prioritize the security of your personal and financial information. Our IT Expert, Shay, emphasizes the importance of steering clear from the convenience of public Wi-Fi when making online purchases. Despite its easy accessibility, public Wi-Fi networks pose significant security risks, making them vulnerable to cyber threats and potential attacks.

To secure your sensitive data during online transactions, we have two strategies.

  • First, utilize a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to enhance your online security. A VPN encrypts your internet connection, providing a secure tunnel for your data to travel through. This encryption ensures that any information exchanged between your device and the online shopping platform remains confidential and protected from prying eyes.

  • Second, consider relying on your phone's data plan instead of connecting to public Wi-Fi hotspots. Mobile data networks are generally more secure than public Wi-Fi, reducing the likelihood of unauthorized access to your personal details.

Taking these proactive steps can ensure a worry-free online shopping experience!
