Save big money with Free WIFI?

Who wants to pay for Internet?  Maybe your neighbor has open WIFI!  Freedom!  FREE!!!

The problem is that your neighbor's WIFI should never be trusted.  Here's what your neighbor could find out about you:
  • Who you are
  • What sites you visit
  • Your daily schedule
  • What kind of devices you use
  • Probe your devices for vulnerabilities
  • Read many of the web pages you read as you read them
  • See how much mail you receive and send
  • Manipulate what you read on the internet
Now don't be surprised - your ISP can do these things too.  But at least your ISP has a reputation to uphold and (weak) regulations that they must legally conform to.  Your anonymous neighbor that you're stealing from?  They don't really have to worry about such things.

If you're going to steal Internet, use VPN.  VPN doesn't solve all problems, but it solves some of them.
