Hello!

I new to the world of wireless internet, and have a few qustions. How secure is an average, unsecured (no wep or wpa encryption) hotspot? What kind of information that I send can be seen over it? By who?

I realize that unencrypted hospots are not very secure, and I found a program that claims to secure my connection.

Will/does this work? Running it, What kind of information that I send can be seen over it? By who?

Any other advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much.

Paul.
