No, no, no. Public Wi-Fi is listed as insecure for good reasons. Public Wi-Fi usually offers no password security, leaving anyone to use/misuse the network. These hot-spots are open to a MITM attack that leaves people in danger. This is pretty easy to do, all I need is ParrotOS on a usb drive, and I’m ready to start some turmoil.
This is like saying, stop calling a house that always leaves their doors wide open, as insecure.
These aren’t my views btw, just posting the news.
