Dangers of free public WiFi hotspots


  1. Very true, and simple yet powerful advice for the average mobile user. Only thing I can think of for most casual hotspot users: I’ve heard some hackers, when you’re using a VPN so they can’t Wireshark your usage if you connected to them w/o knowing, will get a list of devices on their spoofed (or the real) hotspot network, then try to ping-for-ports to establish remote connection…make sure ports are “stealthed”, and that OS/firewall further blocks all incoming connections, on top of using a good VPN.
