If you are one of 600 million Samsung device users worldwide, your mobile security is at risk. That’s because all Samsung devices (yes, even the snazzy new Galaxy S6) are vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks on public WiFi. The vulnerability is due to a problem with SwiftKey, a keyboard app that’s preinstalled on all Samsung android devices.
Though Samsung is working feverishly to release a patch, we highly recommend that you protect yourself right now by installing a mobile security app such as ZoneAlarm Capsule that blocks hackers from communicating with your device. Make sure the app you choose includes a VPN that encrypts all incoming and outgoing communications on Public WiFi.

But the fact that WiFi is public and free doesn’t mean that it’s safe. To the contrary, it could be quite dangerous. Because if WiFi is free and accessible to you, then it’s free and accessible to everyone, including hackers.
WiFi On the Go – What You Need To Know
When you use free WiFi, you open up your device and communications to anyone else using that same free network. And though many people may be checking their email and updating their Facebook status just like you, others may be looking for their next online victim.
If you’re on public WiFi and your device is unprotected, hackers can access crucial personal information in seconds.
