 *Avoid using your passwords

1. Avoid using your passwords

There are a lot of passwords to remember at times, and you may have to enter some even while you’re on Wi-Fi in public. But the thing you should know is that everything you write and send online can be compromised evenly at the same moment. That’s why you should avoid typing your passwords in places where you connect to the internet and you don’t know who’s calling you on that network. But if necessary, you can use a password manager who stores passwords for you and keep them encrypted, even on mobile apps, a feature provided by the majority of antivirus programs.

2. Verify that you are using a non-fake network

Remember that hackers are very smart, so it’s best to browse the internet smart so you don’t be ransomed by some exploiters. Read the name of the network carefully and ask about it carefully and make sure it is not a fake network. Because hackers often create fake networks which can make it very easily easier for them to penetrate you.

3. Update your system device.

Always make sure the system installed on your device has the latest Windows updates available, as every downloaded system update adds security enhancements to your device. It is therefore recommended not to use public Wi-Fi networks with an older operating system. Because it can cause your computer to hack easily.

4. Turn off file sharing

When connected to a public consultation, make sure the file-sharing option is turned off while you’re using Wi-Fi. By going to turn off file sharing from System Settings or Control Panel, whether you’re using Windows or Mac. So I’m going to suggest you a few steps to stop sharing files on your Tibetan operating system on your device.

If you are using Windows:

Go to WiFi Settings.

Then change the advanced sharing settings.

Turn off file and printer sharing.

And if you use Mac :

Go to System Settings.

Choose a post.

Deselect everything.

Then you will pick up a Finder, AirDrop has been clicked, and select Allow Me to discover: None.

For iOS on phones and tablets, simply find AirDrop in Control Center and turn it off.

5. Use SSL connections

Although you’re unlikely to have a VPN connection when browsing the internet in general, that doesn’t stop you from adding some simple encryption precautions to your connections.
Always check which sites you visit, when you visit any site make sure it is encrypted or not. Search at the beginning of the address of any website for HTTPS. If it exists it means that the connection between the browser and the web server is encrypted, so any data sent to the website will be immune from eavesdropping or tampering.
Most browsers also include a lock icon at the beginning of the address to indicate that the site is using encryption, and also make sure that the site link is in Google's search engine.

6. Don’t simply trust the email messages that followed you.

If you receive a suspicious email with a link from an unknown contact, make sure that the message you receive before you click on any link, even if it has a lock icon or “https” in the browser address bar. Suspicious emails are not directly answered. And also check for spelling errors or wrong areas.

7. Turn off the automatic connection

The majority of electronic devices such as smartphones, computers and tablets have automatic Wi-Fi connection settings. This feature may allow you to connect to networks near you easily. It’s a good feature for trusted networks, but it can also connect your device to networks that may be insecure which can make you taste for some hackers, especially when you’re on the move a lot. So it’s a good idea to turn this feature off from your device settings.
Additional precaution, you should also monitor Bluetooth while in public. Because Bluetooth allows some different devices to communicate with each other, that's why some hackers look for open Bluetooth signals to access your device when you always turn it off when you finish it.

8. Delete Wi-Fi when the connection ends

At the end of the browsing session, the computer continues to send data over Wi-Fi, even if it is at a certain distance. To not give hackers a chance, remove public Wi-Fi altogether when the connection ends. This way, you avoid automatically connecting your device to the network next time. Even if you contact her permanently, you have to take all measures so as not to remain at the mercy of cybercriminals. You should apply these tips before connecting to public Wi-Fi to keep your data safe.

9. Use antivirus software

Antivirus software can protect you when using a public Wi-Fi network by detecting some malware that hackers may use to access your system when you’re on a shared network. So you should always check that you are using the latest version of software installed on your device. In the event of any suspicious activity, malicious attack, or some malware access to your system over the network, then the antivirus will show you an alert on your device with the option to prevent them from accessing your system so that you are not a victim of theft of all your data.
