    I wouldn't share my private keys via an unencrypted method at a coffee shop, but I would happily play CS2 on their wifi.

      Yes, you could end up in a conversation with some filthy hipster.

      Just carry a raspberry pihole and firewall device with you, and then connect to that configuration while you have the firewall device facing the coffee shop wifi.

      HTTPS is safe over untrusted wifi. Or at least as safe as it ever is. Just don't ignore browser certificate errors.

      Has anyone tried to pirate shit with coffee shop wifi

      Did you get into trouble for doing that

        A couple times I sat in a CuckBuck's with a laptop pushing out a false AP SSID just called "WiFi" (unsecured) that redirected to a quick "login page" with a T&C that u wrote that states I get to keep everything you do that passes through my AP.

        I thought people would actually read that bit, but I was only there for like an hour at most and got 15 different cards and logins from people. I didn't use any of the cards since I didn't want to get in trouble, but I did use a Netflix login and HBO login I snagged for like a year undetected.

        Jokes aside is anything like this a real option for cellphone users?

            Sorry homosexuals, but I'm not about to be either locked out of society by not using a cellphone, nor about to give up my privacy entirely. Obviously I don't put important shit on my phone, but I'm interested in seeing if there's a decent and relatively secure way to connect to wifi points without getting digitally raped.

              you're the one who is coming to a hessian prayer circle scheduling bulletin board for advice on privacy(?) using public wifi.

              either read about how networking and computers work in one of the myriad of manuals and posts that already exist on this subject, pay me to solve this problem for you, or, grab your shovel and get back to digging up tubers.

              actually keep replying to me so I can keep sagin'

                OK - bet you cannot do it without my help. Sorry bit busy gargling a wiener right now, but if you ask in 20 minutes I may be free, depends on if I'm in the mood for violent crime or not.

              Black person do you think you need to install software on your computer to connect to someone's wifi?
              For browsing all they can see is websites you connect to. They can't see anything beyond the domain. So if you were viewing this thread from public wifi, all they could see is you connected to boards.IST

              They will likely also see your DNS traffic if you don't use encrypted DNS, but that's simple to setup on pretty much any OS.

              If you want to be a moron schizo, you can setup a firewall on your device to deny all incoming connections if you're that worried. (Windows will basically do that automatically if you tell it it's a public network). Set your own DNS that is encrypted and make sure all the sites you connect to are HTTPS.

              And of course you could use a VPN. A commercial one or set one up at home and connect to that. But it's really not necessary if you do the above and aren't worried about them seeing which sites you connect to.

              Oh and might as well set your wifi card to change mac addresses because most OSs support it now, although it's not like it really matters if you're not on the FBI's most wanted list.

                It's more of a concern for me cause I travel to shit-hole countries on occasion. I will do due diligence and research your inputs though. Thank you, helpful anon.

    Unless you're doing something hackish the worst they can do is frick with DNS or make your package updates/connections fail.

    on the contrary, coffee shop wi-fi can be great for privacy. You can connect to Tor without making it known to your ISP.

    The whole Internet is unsafe if your endpoint is not behind a proper endpoint.
    A coffee shop wifi is unsafe.
    But so is the mobile network or the average joe's home access point.
