Free WiFi Hull IT Support

Free WiFi Hull IT SupportPublic WiFi hotspots can be really useful if you need to access the internet when you are away from home or work. But not all WiFi connections are secure and they can be used by criminals to steal your data.


This technique is used by criminals to capture the data you send over a WiFi network. They can steal login names, passwords and other information and then sell it on or use it to access your system. It is especially dangerous if you have the login details stored (or “cached”) on your device as they are sent across the network without you typing them in.

Evil Access Points

Sometimes criminals set up authentic-sounding WiFi access points to trick you into connecting to them. The network name could be a familiar company name or simply “FreeWiFI”. You actually connect to the criminal’s computer and all the information you type in goes straight to them.

How To Stay Safe on Public WiFi

There are some simple ways to stay safe on public WiFi networks:

Use a VPN

Digitalquill can provide you with a secure VPN for business travel. It encrypts data sent to and from your device so even if you connect to a malicious computer, your data will not be able to be read.

Can it wait?

If your activity is not essential, don’t do it over public WiFI. Tempting as it may be to check your bank balance on the move with your banking app, you risk losing your login details – and money – by doing so.

Use Mobile Data

If you are unsure, don’t connect to a public WiFI hotspot – use your phone’s 3G or 4G connection instead. Data passed over such a network is encrypted.

outdoor wifi hotspot

We expect WiFi access everywhere these days, and not just indoors. You might want an outdoor WiFI access point to offer for customers to your café, garden centre or activity centre. If your business has a yard or outdoor area then you might need outdoor WiFi for your staff to connect to as they work. You can’t just take a normal WiFi router or extender and put it outdoors: you need a dedicated outdoor WiFI Hotspot.

You will definitely be reducing the amount of bandwidth available for business purposes.
