As a college student, I’ve done my fair share of Starbucks study sessions.. Why not? They provide free wifi and amazing coffee, or as I call it, “go juice.”
Unfortunately connecting to these public networks can be very dangerous because you’re putting all of your personal information at risk. Many hackers have the knowledge and ability to get between you and the connection point in a public network and gather all of the info you’re sending right to their computer.
Using networks such as these can also result in viruses or other types of malware dirt subdued by someone who wished to harm your computer or obtain your information. It’s much easier than you might think.
