Most public Wifi networks are open, which means that none of the data transmitted is encrypted.
The data is therefore potentially accessible to anyone connected to the same network.
WITH TRANSATEL DATASIM, YOUR COMMUNICATIONS ARE PRIVATE
The dangers of public Wifi
Even if you intend to reach a VPN (Virtual Private Network) or a website secured by https (used for online banking, for example), accessing the internet from your device via a public Wifi hotspot means crossing a minefield of potential risks.
If you have no information on the network you are trying to access—and even if a code is required for this network—you have no control over the final destination of your data. Some hotspots mimic reputed networks to gain your trust, in order to access your data. Worse even, hackers can manage to introduce themselves inside your PC to remotely copy the entire contents of your hard disk.
Yes, hackers can access 100% of your communications while you believe you are in a secure environment. Not when you’re using your Transatel DataSIM—you benefit from a personal, secure, cellular access to the internet.
