Internet on the go is a convenient feature applicable to most modern devices and technology. Laptops, smartphones and tablets all have some way to connect to wireless connections – provided they detect them.
However, connecting to random wireless connections can be a major security risk, especially public wireless ones. This is because unsecured connections display your browsing history to anyone savvy enough to find it. In worst case scenarios, this can include sensitive login info for things like bank accounts or social media pages.
