I know that I've said this a lot, but it's so important I'm going to say it again: You have to secure your Wi-Fi! There's no excuse for an unsecured Internet connection.
An open Wi-Fi network is an invitation for anyone to hop on. From neighbors to hackers, you could be hosting a party that slows down your connection, puts your information at risk or even gets you in legal trouble.
But it's not just your home computer hackers are after. They want the data on your smartphones and tablets, too, and they can take it with an insecure Wi-Fi connection.
How can you make sure you stay safe on any Wi-Fi connection?
