Do you connect your gadgets to open Wi-Fi networks while on vacation? Stop, now!—-सविस्तर माहितीसाठी इकॉनॉमिक टाइम्स मधील बातमी वाचावी.

According to a new global study, most people connect to open Wi-Fi networks while on vacation without realising that they may be compromising their personal information.

It’s too easy when taking a well-earned break to forget that though you’re on holiday, digital deviants, hackers and phishing scams aren’t.

Compounding the problem is the fact that according to a new global study conducted by McAfee, most of us won’t be able to put our digital devices down during the summer break.

Over one third (38%) of all 9,500 respondents admitted that even though they’re meant to be on holiday, they wouldn’t be able to go a whole 24 hours without checking work or personal email. What’s more, 52% of US respondents (the firm polled consumers across Australia, France, Germany, the UK and US) said that they typically spend more than an hour a day sifting through email, texts and social media during their vacations.
