28% Of All WiFi Hotspots Are Insecure, Finds Kaspersky Lab Study

Science, Technology

A Kaspersky Lab study has found that 28% of all WiFi hotspots present globally, that is more than 1 in every 4, has no security, encryption or password protection. The company has collated data from more than 31 million WiFi hotspots. Most of these “risky” hotspots reside in popular tourist destinations in countries like France, Thailand and US.

Kaspersky has warned these hotspots can be easily targeted by hackers and any user can have sensitive personal information intercepted. Kaspersky also warned that only 57% of all WiFi users are concerned about data security over WiFi connection. Accessing your bank account, logging on to personal accounts of websites or transmitting personal information over public WiFi hotspots can spell disaster.
