What is spoofed Wi-Fi?

Do you stop – and think – of the potential dangers before you connect to any public Wi-Fi spot?

When you’re out and about, it’s easy to connect to a business’s Wi-Fi without a second thought, especially if it’s in the pub!

But the fact is, public Wi-Fi is a prime target for attackers.

Cyber-criminals create spoofed Wi-Fi access points that look like the real deal, so much so that it would be very difficult for anyone to spot at a glance. Which is why so many people get caught by this type of attack.

The hackers sit between you and the internet. So they get a copy of all the data you’re sending from your device.

You’ll potentially give attackers usernames, passwords, and maybe even credit card details.

It’s so lucrative, that it’s estimated up to a quarter of all public hotspots are spoofs.

Good news – there are ways to prevent any data from being stolen.
