Krystal Resort Warns Travelers of Public Wi-Fi Scams

Krystal Resort scam prevention team recognizes the convenience of public Wi-Fi for travelers who want internet access for any number of reasons. It offers convenience within a given area to accomplish something while away from home. However, the risk of being targeted for scams can increase when using public Wi-Fi.

Technology is indeed a blessing, but it can also be abused by the wrong people. For example, a guest at a hotel might want to use the public Wi-Fi that is provided by that hotel. Scammers can take advantage of this by creating false wireless networks that appear to be that of a hotel.

For scammers with more technological skill, Krystal Resort scam prevention team knows that some have the ability to actually hack into a hotel’s Wi-Fi service to access the activity and information of a guest’s computer. From there, personal information can be used for personal gain and result in financial loss for a guest who simply wanted to utilize a convenient service provided by the hotel.

If the need to use public Wi-Fi arises, travelers should avoid accessing websites and inputting sensitive information that could be obtained by somebody committing scams. Having adequate virus protection and current updates will also serve as a defense from scams.  In other words, public Wi-Fi is better to use for only casual surfing. If anything on a wireless network seems suspicious, it should be reported to appropriate staff immediately for further investigation.
