Pay particular attention to the 7th, 8th and 9th warnings.Edited: 12 December 2013, 03:00
thanks for all that very useful info. especially helpful to those of us who are not exactly tech-savvy (I'm so tech-unsavvy that I don't even have a smart phone. we do, however, travel with an iPad mini))
We use bar wifi on holiday but always switch wifi off when we leave and only go onto TA or facebook and check our emails and don't look at anything where we need to put in personal details. The piece though is good advice for people who aren't very savvy on these things.
You should still use a VPN in public places when doing any of these things.
Many thanks for the heads up.
