You should avoid hotel Wi Fi networks, they are very attractive hacker targets

Numerous passengers often chose in line with Wi Fi network availability but "TechRadar" reports that it is not the best move. Devices of hotel guests are by the rule connected to insufficiently unprotected and unsafe networks.

Analysts and security experts state that with simple Wi-Fi adapter and free software it is possible to listen to all communication which mobile or laptop computers carry out with the rest of the world. Hotels usually do not limit which pages can be visited, there is no segmentation and public and hotel Wi-Fi does not use WPA.

The biggest problem at this moment is with the hotels themselves. Demand for free Wi-Fi networks has been on the increase and infrastructure must be taken care of. The cheapest solutions are not the best ones at all.
