Are my data or email secured?
Wireless transmissions, by their nature, can be intercepted very easily. The transmissions in and out of your laptop over a wireless network can be easily captured and/or read. If your data are not encrypted when they leave your computer they are not secure. It is recommended that you do not use this wireless Internet for secure transactions, such as banking, investments, or even proprietary information. More authoritative information is available on the Free WiFi Hotspots website.
