What can someone potentially see when you use unsecured public WiFi?
delia25 22 weeks ago
I understand that using unsecured public WiFi is a security risk, and if I’m not using a VPN, someone can “eavesdrop” on my activity. What I don’t know is what could they actually see? Could they just mirror my activity on their laptop and watch in real time what I’m doing, or is it more like you might see in a Hollywood movie, with pages of code streaming quickly down the screen (preferably green text on a black background for max cliche).
