Using a Computer in Public
Computing in Public
Whether you’re on a laptop, smartphone, or mobile device, or you’re using a public computer in a cybercafé or library, privacy and security are concerns.
- What’s on your screen? There’s a very good chance that what you’re viewing, others can see too, even if they shouldn’t be looking. A privacy screen is a good investment if you need to work while traveling or commuting.
- To Wi-Fi or not? While convenient, unsecured networks are risky: Your computer can be hacked or infected with a virus.
- Do you have a name tag? Take a couple of minutes to tape your business card to your computer so that if it’s lost, you have a better chance of having it returned to you.
