One of the things we like to remind all our customers at Norton security chat support is that whenever you are working from an open Wi-Fi network, your data is safe only in the encrypted pages. The pages that start with https are reliable. You will find your bank and credit card company websites following this practice. On the other hand, your web email may not be encrypted. If you email vital information like user IDs and passwords, they run the risk of being accessed by hackers.
A hacker may track the data of your browser to pretend that he or she is you. When you want to check your social media or email account from an open Wi-Fi connection, Norton support live chat recommends you to make sure that you use a secure session. Here is how you secure your session:
The best way to safeguard against any snooper is to use a virtual private network (VPN). In fact, the large and reputed companies insist that employees use a VPN while doing any business over wireless network. There are different VPN options to choose from. Choose a strong personal VPN to protect your laptops, mobiles and other devices when using Wi-Fi hotspot. This is the smartest and safest way to enjoy the convenience that Wi-Fi hotspots bring to our lives, says our expert Norton antivirus support UK technicians.
You can secure your Twitter session by typing an‘s’ in the browser bar, followed by the http. Once you do that, your session remains secure till you log out of Twitter.
Every user may not have access to it. It is still new. You have to secure your browsing by logging in, then going to Accounts then Account Settings and under ‘Account Setting,’ you have to check the box for ‘Browse Facebook on a secure connection (https) whenever possible.’
