[Mi Bunny Tips] [Mi Bunny Tips #10] 4 Good-to-Know Tips to Use Public WiFi Hotspots Safely!

Hello Fellow MIUI Fans,

Wi-Fi hotspots in coffee shops, libraries, airports, hotels, universities, and other public places are convenient, but often they’re not secure. If you connect to a Wi-Fi network, and send information through websites or mobile apps, it might be accessed by someone else. To protect your information when using wireless hotspots, send information only to sites that are fully encrypted, and avoid using mobile apps that require personal or financial information. In our today's volume of Mi Bunny Tips, we're sharing few tips which can help you in remaining safe while using public Wi-Fi hotspots.

1. Keeping Operating System Up to Date:

Operating system updates aren’t just about delivering new features to your smartphone. They’re sent out to harden the operating system, fix vulnerabilities, and prevent hackers from stealing your data. And this tip isn’t just for public Wi-Fi, it’s for everything. Keep your mobile operating system updated regardless! In MIUI, you may check the latest update from Settings  My device

2. Don’t Waste Time With a Slow Public Wi-Fi Network:
Logged onto an open Wi-Fi network and found that your connection is slow? Trouble even making a connection to the sign-in page? Take care — or better still, disconnect. There is a chance that this sluggish speed is because the router has been compromised. Another explanation might be that you haven’t connected to the router at all, but to another device posing as the router. Speed may appear slow because data is being routed via the other device

3. Avoiding Financial Transactions:
Without Protection Online banking and shopping over an unsecure, public Wi-Fi connection is unsafe. Those sniffing scammers can use the tools at their disposal to make things very difficult for you the moment some unencrypted data heads their way. Naturally you should only shop with companies that keep your password secure. It’s best that you avoid creating issues at your end.

4. Bringing Your Own Wi-Fi Instead:
The real best protection from an untrusted network is not using it at all. Of course, this isn’t a real way to make public Wi-Fi any safer, but if you can, consider ditching the public Wi-Fi entirely and bringing your own. Whether you use a mobile hotspot like a MiFi or you just tether to your smartphone and use your wireless carrier’s data, both approaches get you off of the sketchy public Wi-Fi at the airport while you’re waiting for your layover and onto cellular data instead. You may also bring the Xiaomi ZMI Router with you which is also a powerbank of 10000 mAh.
Fellow MIUIers, hope the aforementioned tips will help you in being secured while using public WiFi hotspots. See you soon with few more tips, signing off for now!
