    I agree that connecting to public wifi alone is very risky. Its something that you should never try if you know that you aren’t connected to any vpn services. I was like that before, love to connect anywhere and such but when some of my accounts were hacked, my friend made me realized how important a vpn is. Now I’m a FrootVPN user for over 2 years. I’m satisfied! Cheers to this post!
