If you can access it safely.

Use these five tips to keep your devices and data safe!

TIP 1
Don’t connect to unknown Wi-Fi networks. They are an open invitation for hackers to compromise unsecured devices.

Choose your network wisely. "Evil twin" Wi-Fi hotspots are sometimes created in the same location to lure and attack unsuspecting mobile users.

TIP 3
Turn off settings that automatically search for Wi-Fi networks to prevent your phone, tablet, or laptop from connecting to unsecured networks.
