How do I make my browsing secure when am using public wi fi connection or networks? I recently found out that hen am in public using public networks (wi fi), window will put my connection in public thereby protecting some of my files, but this protection is really limited because someone was able to access my files while using the same public network. Is there any other ways to increase my privacy while using public networks?

Hello,

 

While there is no way to totally secure a connection that uses a public network, there are things you can do to bring your security level closer to 100%:

 

  1. Disable applications on your computer that will automatically collect and send information about your activities, or disable that function in the settings of the application.

 

  1. When browsing on a public wifi network, change your habits. Limit your activities to those that do not involve sensitive information.

 

  1. Use an anonymous web browser for added security.

 

 

  1. Use an alternate machine for public wifi use. Choose a machine that you do not use to store or access sensitive information.

     

  2. Secure your files on your machine through encryption or changing the permissions of that file.

 

  1. Consider using an operating system which offers numerous viable options for securing your data.
