Question about Measuring Tools & Sensors
Can I use my laptop in France,connect to internet
Many hotels in Europe offer free WiFi connections and the hotels will provide you with the necessary sign-on information when you check in.
Your computer should automatically find the connection then all you have to do is sign on with the information the hotel provided.
In addition, many hotels also have business centers where free computers are available which provide instant access to the internet. In those cases I recommend using the hotel computer to protect information that you have on your laptop.
Hacking is a major problem in Europe and often hackers will have locked onto your computer within seconds after you have logged in...especially on public WiFi networks.
This can and does happen even on "secure" sites. You need to be aware of this and avoid accessing any websites where you have confidential information.
Once you return from France, I would suggest running an immediate full system anti-virus scan and I would change all of the passwords in all of the accounts I accessed while I was away.
