On March 20, 2018, Gavin authored an article titled “The HOPDADDY experience – The dangers of public wifi with great food”.

The article is intended to educate people about the dangers of free wifi using his experience at a restaurant in Istanbul, Turkey.

The article touched on the risks of using public wifi, the benefits of using sites with HTTPS and additional tips to help you stay safe on the internet.

My opinion is that “free” or public Wi-Fi is not intended to be trusted for sensitive or confidential personal activities such as banking.
