    Guys I was hoping to do banking on my ipod using hotspots all over europe but I've heard that it's not safe. Is there any app that I can load that would make my ipod secure? What about bank web pages aren't they secure? What should I do?

    Thanks

    You should never do it on an open wifi network and alway make sure it's on a secure network so it's encrypted

    Yes I understand that hotspots are open but if I'm doing banking through encrypted web page isn't that safe?

    Never ever do anything personal on open wifi, it doesnt matter if the page is encrypted or not

    Hmm depends on the security of the bank page
