7. Where Can I Access FREE Wifi

Please Note:
People face risk when they connect to a public Wi-Fi network. It is important that people consider what they use public Wi-Fi for and are aware that there are cyber criminals that will use every opportunity to infiltrate networks in order to gather personal and financial details. Advice from www.actionfraud.police.uk when using wifi hotspots:

  • Exercise caution and verify the authenticity of the Wi-Fi network before logging onto it. For example speak to an employee at the location that’s providing the public Wi-Fi connection, and ask for information about their legitimate Wi-Fi access point – such as the connection’s name and IP address.
  • Use a trusted Virtual Private Network (VPN) service in order to secure your traffic. By using a VPN when you connect to a public Wi-Fi network, you’ll be encrypting all of your data that passes through the network.
  • Use mobile data services such as 4G in preference to public Wi-Fi wherever possible.
  • If you are concerned about the network raise this with the organisation providing the public Wi-Fi service or contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
  • Don’t download applications to your electronic devices.
  • Don’t install any updates to programmes on your computer.
  • Avoid accessing your emails, social network accounts or online banking services.
  • Don’t online shop and reveal financial details.
