Travel Website of the Week: Skycure Threat Map

If you’re signed up my Daily Tavel Tip newsletter (you can sign up here), you already know about the importance of staying away from “free” Wi-Fi networks—especially when you’re traveling. As I wrote last week, it turns out there’s no shortage of lowlife hackers trying to trick eager tourists who want to share their photos and stay connected with loved ones. Setting up “free” Wi-Fi networks is one way these hackers can prey on trusting people.

These dangerous, rogue hotspots can be found in airports and at popular attractions like Times Square, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Vatican City, and thousands of other places around the world. In less than a minute, hackers can use them to take everything (password, emails, photos…) from your phone or laptop. So, you should use caution when logging on to free Wi-Fi—and for an idea of where these dangerous networks are, check out .

FYI: When I travel I use a VPN (Virtual Private Network). There are plenty on the market but I like PrivateWiFi.com.
