How Risky is it to Check Your Bank Account on Public Wi-Fi?
Have you ever wondered if it’s safe to view your bank account on public Wi-Fi? Read on for some tips on how you can have a safer browsing experience.
You’re at a coffeeshop doing some work on the cafe’s Wi-Fi, and you decide to check your bank account to see if you have enough funds to cover your weekend plans. But is this a safe idea? The answer: not really. If you’re going to check your bank account, you should always do so on a secure, private Wi-Fi network, or else on your phone’s cellular connection. Otherwise, a hacker may be able to see your every move. When accessing your bank information online, you should activate anti-hacking so that you remain protected against online scams:
The anti-hacking feature eliminates worry, letting you browse online and stay protected against phishing attempts, hackers, malicious websites, and online scams. That way, even if a malicious website is mimicking your bank’s website, you won’t be able to enter your account information on the site because anti-hacking will warn you of the site’s intentions and block your access. That’s it; think of anti-hacking as your personal browsing bodyguard. That way, you can get back to browsing the websites you love without worrying about a scam.
