It's now easier than ever to connect and multitask from almost anywhere. Here are some tips to help you stay safe while on the go:
- Disable remote and automatic connection to Wi-fi and Bluetooth on your devices. Use Bluetooth in hidden mode instead of discoverable mode.
- Avoid public or unsecured Wi-fi networks whenever possible, especially in airports, hotels and cafes. Never use such networks to access financial accounts. Instead, use a network you trust or your cellular network.
- If you have to use a public charging station, use a power charger outlet, not just the USB connection (USB connections are how scammers access and upload malware to your device). You can also use a cable that's just for power and doesn't allow data transfer.
