Secure WiFi connection- when traveling
« on: May 08, 2012, 12:28:23 am »

I love my Thrive!!  I am planning on traveling (US & Canada) and taking only my Thrive and leaving my laptop at home.   But, as I am traveling, when I want to use my Thrive for I'net, do I need anything special - to make sure it is "secure" - and also do I need any attachment, etc. to make sure I can access the I'net from my Thrive while traveling.  Thanks for any help!

If you are travelling, most wifi hotspots are not secure.  Be very careful in what sites you visit online, etc. For example, don't go to your bank account online.

Good luck and happy travels.  8)

Your best alternative would be to tether your Thrive to your cell phone (provided you have an Android phone that can be configured to act as a secured WiFi hotspot). Although this may incur extra data/roaming charges on your phone bill.
