Hostel and Guesthouse Computer Security Tip

Hostel Computers Are Great For Travel But Potentially The Least Secure.

Many hostels nowadays have public computers with internet access which is a godsend to those that need it. And internet cafes are also aplenty. But the thing is, often times when you do need it, its for personal things – meaning accessing sites that require your passwords, credit card numbers, Facebook logins, emails and other sensitive information. This simple tip should be used backpacking or in your home country; never opt for the “save username / password” option when logging in on a public computer. The reason should be obvious. Most people almost always saves the password at their favorite websites, on their own computer – as a habit. Make it a habit to do the opposite during your travels.
