Free Wi-Fi in Coffee Shops is for you to watch or read something over a cup of coffee. Feel free to watch YouTube videos, read gossips on E! News, or browse items that you like to buy LATER. The internet access in public places is usually called the insecure internet access, because when we share the same Wi-Fi station, others can easily gain access to information that we send and receive from the internet.

Let’s draw a line among GOOD, OK and NEVER for using free Wi-Fi in the coffee shops, libraries, buses, or airports.
Good: Watch videos. (The best thing to
do in coffee shops.)
Chat over Skype.
Ok: Check emails.
Shopping, as long as you don’t
need to type your credit card
Any account that you need to
type your social security numbers,
or credit card numbers.
Free internet access means unpaid security. It is possible for some bad person to see what’s on your screen in his/her computer , and sharing a free Wi-Fi station only makes things too easy for him/her to do.
The bottom line is that for the information you don’t wish to show in public, don’t access it by free public Wi-Fi.
