Online gift cards seem to be perfect gifts on the recent holiday season. However, much caution should be placed when cashing them in using public Wi-Fi.
Hotspots as they are known, restaurants, bars, library, and other public places have put up free wireless internet access to people who frequent these establishments. Those who are just too happy to have free access oftentimes forget that these networks mostly lack proper security which makes users vulnerable against cyber- attacks. Online shopping should be a rewarding and fun experience but doing it on a public Wi-Fi will only cause a humiliation, disappointment, and a huge damage to your accounts.
