Public Wifi Network
Public wifi networks are wifi networks available for anyone, typically in places like coffee shops, airports, or libraries. Public networks can be unsafe to use because bad actors or malicious criminals can intercept your connection and potentially steal your personal information, such as your passwords, credit card information, or other sensitive data.
Oversharing on social media is when you share too much personal information online, such as your location or phone number. Sharing too much information online can have serious negative consequences as it leaves you vulnerable to many cyber risks.
