Grand Solmar Timeshare Scam Awareness Team knows as the internet becomes more popular, the use of it becomes more dangerous. When the internet first arrived, people were not sure what it could do and were more cautious about how they used it. It is now more accepted and people have multiple devices that they use to connect to the internet. E-readers, tablets, laptops and phones give people wider access to the internet.
If you use a free Wi-Fi that is available in many restaurants or hotels, you may be allowing people to access your computer device without you knowing it. A determined individual has no problem accessing the different devices that connect to these public networks and if the user is not careful, they could become the target of one of these individuals. Grand Solmar Timeshare wants to make people aware of the possible dangers that they face.
Various individuals will work to load malware, spyware and other types of viruses on your computer while you are on a public network. Most computers have protection that comes in the form of a firewall that prevents this problem. In order for a firewall to work, you need to make sure that it is turned on. Grand Solmar Timeshare recommends doing this before you try to access any free Wi-Fi.
When you are traveling and using the free Wi-Fi, be aware of the sites that you visit. The key to scam prevention is to avoid putting your computer in harm’s way. If you visit secure sites that require your passwords, be wary, as this is where these individuals will try to strike.
