With a tablet or phone it can be easy and tempting to check in with the office, write a few emails or even do some personal banking on the go. This usually means connecting to the Internet, and because so many mobile plans limit the amount of data you can use, you will likely use Wi-Fi.
The thing is, many of these Wi-Fi hotspots found in airports, Starbucks, etc. are open. This means that anyone with the tools and knowledge could gain access to devices connected to this network. Connecting to a public Wi-Fi network or hotspot could put your data and device at risk.
You should take steps to limit that amount of important business oriented tasks you do while connected to these networks. At the very least, you should not allow your device to connect automatically to open or unsecured Wi-Fi networks. By physically signing into networks or choosing what networks you connect to, you can somewhat control or limit security issues that stem from Wi-Fi connections.
