'public wifi carries some risks.
it sounds basic, but start by making sure your firewall is turned on. its the first line of defense against viruses and malware. when youre on public wifi, the biggest worry is probably hackers. consumer reports security expert dean gallea created a fake wifi hot spot --allowing him to observe and capture someone elses internet activity. "i dont think people are aware how easy it is to do what i did." but several tweaks protected on public wifi. including turning off settings like network discovery and file sharing --that will make it more difficult for people near you to see your data. an 'open' wifi hotspot makes you particularly vulnerable,becaus e any hacker can join it without a password. you can also add a layer of protection to public wifi by using a virtual private network, or 'v- p-n.' "a lot of people are familiar with vpns from their work, because many companies require their employees to have a vpn if theyre logging on from home or
get a vpn yourself for a few bucks a month and it adds a lot of security to their own computing." consumer reports says every adjustment can make a difference. another important step you can take to protect yourself, is to set up automatic updates on your devices -- and always install them when theyre offered to you. keeping devices like phones, laptops, and routers updated --ensures that they are armed with the latest protections. i'm jenna sachs contact 6. do you have a consumer issue or investigation idea? give jenna a call!! the number is on yu file a complaint on the contact 6 page at fox-6-now-dot-com.
