I read that I should be cautious of "copycat" networks, but I don't know how to spot them.
Can you tell based on the photo below if that is a legitimate network from Xfinity?
Should there be "lock" symbol by the network name?
I'm new to this. Thanks.
I can't see the photo I uploaded.
Connect to XFINITY
I'll try to upload the photo again...
Thanks. I was just thinking about this because
(1) I got a work email warning us to be careful of copy-cat networks
(2) I read that 'everyone' should be using VPNs when using public wifi, so I assumed that it was risky, but I don't know HOW TO IDENTIFY when something IS a copy-cat.
I just did an internet search and found this (bleow) so I'm still curious:
A VPN secures your computer’s internet connection to guarantee that all of the data you’re sending and receiving is encrypted and secured from prying eyes. (lifehacker dot com)
