If a public Wi-Fi is not properly configured, anyone with a certain amount of knowledge can intercept all the traffic flowing through that network and redirect it as they wish. You may think you are accessing a specific, legitimate page but in reality it is one that has been modified by a cybercriminal.
What is the danger?
Cybercriminals gain access to sensitive data, such as passwords or bank details, and can even infect devices that have connected to that Wi-Fi.
