Using public wifi network is not always safe, this is because attackers can hack into the system and steal valuable personal information from you. When you are not sure of a website do not enter into it.
- Look for the lock. Before you enter personal information online, make sure the website is encrypted by looking for the lock icon next to the URL (lock icon).
- Go Virtual. If you use WiFi often, use a VPN (Virtual Private Network).
- Consider before connecting. Change the settings on your mobile device to not automatically connect to public WiFi.
