It is possible to inadvertently connect to an evil twin instead of the legitimate Wi-Fi hotspot you intended to connect to even if you are connected to a legitimate hotspot, and data you send unsecured via the hotspot can be intercepted by a criminal. In either case, if a thief intercepts your credit card number, website passwords, or other sensitive data, it can be used for identity theft or other criminal activities.
Wi-Fi Hotspot Safety: Research and submit a one-page paper summarizing your research into evil twins and other potential Wi-Fi hotspot hazards, including a possible precaution for each risk. Include an opinion about the precautions you would use at a hotspot, and whether or not it is possible to surf safely at a hotspot.
