UPDATE: Big congratulations to our Monday winner: Ashley Burdette!
In answer to our question, One of the ways to protect yourself when using public wi-fi is to make sure the site is encrypted. How can you tell if a website is encrypted or not?, Ashley shared the following answer:
“To determine if a website is encrypted, look for https at the beginning of the web address (the “s” is for secure). Some websites use encryption only on the sign-in page, but if any part of your session isn’t encrypted, your entire account could be vulnerable. Look for https on every page you visit, not just when you sign in.”
