Using Wi-Fi is like breathing these days. Moreover, the outbreak of covid-19 has indeed hyped the usage of the internet. The use of Wi-Fi is increasing not only in houses or offices but also in public places. Either for using social media or for studying purposes, we need the internet.

Most of the telecom companies are providing data packages at cheaper rates. You can buy huge data packs ranging from hourly packs to data and monthly packs. Telecommunication companies like NTC, Ncell, and Smart Cell are providing such data packs through which you can get the most of the internet wherever you are.

Apart from these packs from the telecommunication companies, the internet service provider companies (ISPs) are providing free wifis in the major areas. In this regard, Worldlink is providing free internet in various places in Nepal.

Remember to Use Public Wi-Fi Carefully, You Can be Exploited!!

However, one must be careful while using public Wi-Fi. I would like to remind a popular quote that says,

“If you are getting something for free, then you are the product”.

Indeed, when you are getting something for free, make sure that you make the most of it without being exploited. By this, I mean there is a threat for both the users and the hosts providing their hotspots.

For the hosts, attacks on the data systems can occur if some person enters the Wi-Fi network with such intentions. It is because, when someone gets access to a certain Wi-Fi network, they can be a threat if that system is vulnerable. A possible case is that there might be a data breach. Hence, most of the banks have stopped providing free Wi-Fi access to visitors to minimize the risk of a data breach.

For the users, they might have a potential threat to their personal information or data when they are linked with public Wi-Fi.

How to be safe while using free public Wi-Fi?
