Open wifi safety-it still matters even with HTTPS


Make sure to use a VPN on public Wi-Fi. Even though most sites have HTTPS, which prevents most attacks, a few are still possible. The two most common would be:

Man in the Middle – which, contrary to popular belief, is not completely prevented by HTTPS.

Session hijacking – which is basically stealing your cookies.

I have had multiple friends already who have fallen specifically to session hijacking.

Session hijacking is an especially scary attack as it is not prevented by using two-factor authentication.
