Public Wi-Fi—Especially in your hotel
In a study conducted by Javelin Strategy & Research, 26% of consumers questioned had logged into public Wi-Fi in the last 30 days.1 And hotels are common spots for travelers to surf the web. As loads of hotel residents log in, it’s hard to catch a lone lurking hacker. But to identity thieves, non-secure hotel hotspots can be open gates to thievery heaven.
Your devices—Easy to misplace
In 2010, 11,000 of travellers’ mobile devices were lost at five of the busiest U.S. airports. Of those lost devices, 37.5% of them laptops and 37.2% tablets or smartphones.2 You can bet many of those devices contained valuable personal information, or even confidential company data. And that study just accounts for devices lost at those five airports. Between hotels, conference rooms, restaurants, shops, attractions and the remaining U.S. airports, there’s plenty of places you may leave your devices—and your personal information—behind.
