The following is a Plus Edition article written by and copyright by Dick Eastman.
I may seem paranoid about security, but I worry about my personal information wherever it is stored and whenever it is sent across the Internet. Even worse, I travel extensively. (Last week I was in Denver, Colorado; Cheyenne, Wyoming, and Rapid City, South Dakota. Today I am in Massachusetts. Next week I will spend several days Las Vegas, followed by two days in New Jersey.) I often use public wi-fi connections from hotel rooms, airport waiting areas, coffee shops, and most anyplace else that I can find a connection. The problem we all face with normal wi-fi connections in such public places is that they are easily tapped and monitored using today's software tools.

Luckily, there is an easy solution that blocks all the would-be eavesdroppers.
