Protect Your Identity on Flights

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS46) -

There are certain things you should not do on an airplane, especially when you are using their Internet connection. If you do, you risk becoming a victim of identity theft.

Credit.com says you should...

  • Avoid shopping online. A passenger could turn your laptop into a transmitter, which means they can steal all of your personal information.
  • Do not access online banking. By using public Wi-Fi, you give scam artists the ability to access your credit card number and banking information.
  • By checking your email, you risk having your account spammed. Someone could also get their hands on your contact list and send unwanted messages to them.
