    And be careful about checking it on a wireless hotspot…..

    The above statement should probably state

    “When checking bank balance at a public wireless hotspot do the following

    1. Always type the URL ( on the browser address bar

    2. Always READ any messages should one pop-up during the transaction ”

    (1) above will prevent ‘phishing attacks’

    (2) will prevent man-in-the-middle attacks.

    Every computer site seems to provide the high level guidance like you said, but never clear. Careful can also be construed as “look around make sure you are not being watched” :)

    Best way to use public computer – even do not use

    access to you e-mails etc. accounts via Web.

    It is very easy now to send E-mails, without access

    to your inboxes:

    Simply do it from Web Site:

  3. An interesting way to keep some data private is to use a USB Flash Drive loaded with some programs that can run directly from there, so that no files need to be installed on the public computer.

    There’s an entire range of software to choose from at – including Mozilla Firefox and Open Office.
