Is Mobile Banking On Wi-Fi Safe?
Public Wi-Fi is handy, but is it too risky for online banking? One good tip is to use your cellular network instead of Wi-Fi for banking if you have a data plan. According to The Balance blog, “If you have a data plan, use your cellular network instead of Wi-Fi for banking. It’s still possible for thieves to get into those networks, but it’s not nearly as easy as hacking Wi-Fi. If you can also tether other devices or set up a mobile hotspot, do that — at least while you conduct banking business.”
