1. Security on Public Wi-Fi

Public Wi-Fi is convenient but comes at the expense of security. When you’re answering emails at a local coffee shop or absent-mindedly scrolling through social media at the airport, someone may be tracking your online activity.

Using a VPN protects your data while you are on other networks, hiding your browsing history, banking information, account passwords and more from ill-intentioned internet strangers

Understanding WiFi

Many cities use WiFi to provide free or low-cost internet access to people. WiFi networks are easy to set up, inexpensive and unobtrusive.

 A wireless network uses radio waves, just like cell phones, radios and televisions . 

  • A computer's wireless adapter decodes data into a radio signal and transmits it via an antenna. 
  • The wireless router receives the signal, interprets it, and sends the information to the internet using a wired ethernet connection. 
  • The process also happens in reverse.

Wireless communication before cellular technology

The Marconi system made a radio link between systems, which was the size of a building. Eventually, people put up a radio system at a high point in the city, then those with the right kind of radio could talk to the high point.

In essence, there was only one cell, even though it wasn't cellular in any sense. But the amount of data you could send depended on how far away you were. The desire was for these cells to get closer together, leading to the invention of the cellular system.
