1. Know your Network 

Before you connect, be sure you know whose network you are connecting to so you don't fall prey to Wi-Fi hotspots, In case you do not know what the public network at a business is called, ask a staff before connecting. Furthermore, check to ensure your PC or cell phone isn't set up to consequently connect with obscure Wi-Fi Network — or set it to ask you before connecting


2. Keep your connection secure 

Make sure to connect with sites through HTTPS, which encodes anything you send and get from the site. While a VPN service encrypts all that you send, HTTPS guarantees that communication to and from a specific site is secure. To check in case you're connected through HTTPS, take a look at the location bar of your program window; you should see "HTTPS" toward the start of the web address (or, on some internet browsers, a lock symbol). Searching for HTTPS isn't enough, however. Programmers have had the option to obtain real SSL certificates for website with names that are somewhat off those of major monetary foundations and furthermore bear the HTTPS at the front of the URL. Site names include banskfamerica.com, paypwil.com and itunes-security.net. It's in every case better to type the url in yourself as opposed to tapping on a connection you get in an email. 


3. Use a VPN 

If you use a VPN service, anybody attempting to take your information will see just encrypted data, regardless of whether you're connecting with websites using HTTP. There are numerous services that can do this. In view of our own testing, as well as Third party analysis, like PC Mag, we suggest NordVPN, VPN services charge a fee for their use.
