Should I be concerned about the lack of security on the access points?

 

Hotspots are typically not security enabled to allow people to easily connect in order to gain access. Wi-Fi specific security settings tend to hamper this process. All information sent from sites with a “https://” is secured by the website & is safe (Sometimes if the https is not shown, just look for a green bar or lock next to the website address bar).

However sites with only “http://” are not as secure & when entering information caution should be applied as to the type of information being supplied. Do not enter any sensitive information.

*Note* This is true for all networks, whether an ADSL Network, 3G, and even dial-up. The means of scanning the data sent is just different. Unfortunately, in this Digital Age any information not secured can potentially be intercepted.

Revisions to this agreement & Fair Use Policy

 

Representatives of the “Afri Hotspot” Service reserve the right to revise, amend, or modify this Policy, other policies and agreements at any time and in any manner. Notice of any revision, amendment, or modification will be posted in accordance with the Internet Service
