Our use of the internet is completely enmeshed in how we operate on a daily basis. From mindlessly scrolling through our social media feeds, reading articles during a layover or doing some last-minute work at a coffee shop, there are thousands of instances where we need to connect to the internet to communicate and work. Admittedly, the internet connection we use isn't always secure. There are probably thousands of times you've connected to the free Wi-Fi at a hotel, the airport or your favorite hangouts. And while it might feel convenient at the time, the risks of using an unsecured internet connection far outweigh the benefits.
