When you connect to public wi-fi networks (for example, in a restaurant), your data is transferred unencrypted. This means that your logins, passwords, messages, and other sensitive information can be accessed by malefactors. Email addresses can be used for spam mailings and the contents of your social network page may be changed.

To intercept data, a hacker only needs to be within the range of the wireless network (unlike situations with cable networks when a physical connection is required).
