How to use your Wi-Fi securely

How to use your Wifi securely and efficiently
at home and on the go

Nowadays, Wifi is easy, quick and comfortable to use. Wireless networks are all around us – but many do not treat them with necessary care! Hackers and non-professional criminals then have hardly any obstacles when spying on your data. Quicker than you might expect, they get their hands on sensitive data such as login details for online shops or even online banking.

Did you know, for instance that while using many networks and visiting countless websites it is possible to log all the data you send? Not only is there, however, danger in third-party wifi networks, but your own wireless network also requires good protection. Insufficient encryption can quickly lead to, for example, others misusing your connection to spy on your data and undertaking other illegal activities.

Do not worry, you do not have to do without Wifi, though. You should, however, keep some basic rules in mind that you will find in the most recent article in the Emsisoft knowledgebase.
