HTTPS and connect to public Wi-Fi without risk

The use of a public network δεν είναι πλέον τόσο επικίνδυνη όσο ήταν πριν από μια δεκαετία, καθώς η μαζική υιοθέτηση του πρωτοκόλλου HTTPS έχει κάνει πιο δύσκολο το snooping στις επικοινωνίες δικτύου.


This is the last message of (EFF), which explains that the advice that existed to avoid using any public Wi-Fi and stick to encrypted networks ς δεν ισχύουν πλέον αυτές τις μέρες.

“Οι συμβουλές αυτές προέρχονταν από τις αρχές του Διαδικτύου, όταν οι περισσότερες επικοινωνίες δεν ήταν κρυπτογραφημένες. Εκείνη την εποχή, αν κάποιος μπορούσε να κοιτάξει στις επικοινωνίες του δικτύου σας, θα μπορούσε να διαβάσει το email σας. Θα μπορούσαν επίσης να κλέψουν τους ς πρόσβασής σας ή τα cookies σύνδεσης για να σας μιμηθούν στους αγαπημένους σας ιστότοπους.”

But the rapid adoption of HTTPS has solved this shortcoming of public Wi-Fi networks, according to the EFF. 92% of websites in the United States today use HTTPS, η χρήση του αυξάνεται συνεχώς και σε όλες τις άλλες χώρες.

However, the EFF Foundation explains that HTTPS doesn't necessarily protect all of your data, as some information is still exposed when you're connected to a public Wi-Fi and someone is s user trying to spy on you.

Πληροφορίες όπως το domain που ανοίξετε στον browser σας, το μέγεθος των that you download or upload are available to someone monitoring your communications, but on the other hand, login names, passwords and messages are fully protected.

“They could see that metadata, just like the service provider could see it when you browse your home. If it's not a risk to you, then you shouldn't worry about using public Wi-Fi,” the EFF states. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
