Alan is going on vacation and there will be free WiFi at the hotel, and is wondering whether or not it’s safe to use. Leo says it depends. If he’s doing online banking, then he’s using a secure SSL connection. Other services like Facebook, Gmail, etc. are also done securely. However, some services may not be secure.

Leo uses something called the Tiny Hotspot Firewall, which also routes all traffic through a virtual private network (VPN). It’s available from HotSpot VPN. A great deal for $99. [Watch]

    I would never use free WiFi without my VPN client, even with my iPhone. There might just someone waiting in a public WiFi hotspot capturing your account data
