Re: Beware Hotel WiFi

said by MacGyver:

A much better idea in my opinion is the setting of one-time use passwords. You set them in advance in your GMail account while you are at home using your regular password, then if you have to login in an insecure environment, using a one-time password that is no good afterwards ensures your account can't be hijacked.

how to? (or is this the one time pad for 2 step authentication)

I have a VPN setup on my home router as well. I use that while connected to open WiFi hotspots. Either that, or I tether my device to my smartphone that has tethering built in.
