‘Be warned’ Scammers could steal sensitive information using wifi – ‘comes at a cost’

“Only connect to trusted Wifi networks, especially when travelling.

“If you haven’t got any data allowance left, but you are desperately in need of internet connection, consider buying a drink or meal from a nearby cafe or restaurant that offers Wifi to its guests.

“If you travel a lot, and you’d rather not pay for data roaming, it could be worth considering getting a travel router you can use to access Wifi from a trusted local network.”

It can be hard to know whether a free wifi is safe to connect to but it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
