    Is it safe to use public wifi or there are chances that your mobile or laptop can get hacked?

    Of course! the risk of getting hacked is higher if you connect with public wifi but you can reduce the chances by setting your VPN to turn on automatically when connected to a wifi.

    Yeah if you use public wifi, just make sure it’s not on anything where your files can be stolen. There are people who can hack via public wifi, because anyone can connect to it, so that means bad people can use it for their nefarious means.

    I only use my smartphone on public wifi’s when I’m out to safe on data. I don’t save much personal stuff on my phone aside from some photos, and any really personal stuff is moved to my private PC before I use any public wifi.

    Always be careful when using public wifi. VPN helps keep you safe but it’s not 100 percent guaranteed.

    To be extra safe can install antivirus for your mobile. Kaspersky would be a good choice for providing additional protection for your mobile.

    Uss it’s actually not safe. Better be prepared with antivirus software installed and use vpn if using public wifi.

    As far as possible never use a public Wifi, no matter what the urgency. You are not safe and there are chances of your personal data being compromised. Even if you have a good security antivirus or similar softwares installed, stay away from public Wifi. My opinion.

    It is not safe to use public Wi-Fi. I am watching a season Control Z which is about the public Wi-Fi and its instability.

    It’s absolutely not safe to use public WiFi, as many other potential threats would be waiting to attack on unprotected mobiles or laptops. Don’t use them unless it is an emergency, that too try to connect only in Public WiFi provided by authorities such as airport or railway station. Rest kindly try to avoid.

    Obviously. Hacking the server will give you access to the public’s data.
