Do you use free, open Wi-Fi hotspots at local shopping malls? Do you trust these public hotspots?

This is not a Yes/No type of Poll! :mad:

There many of us that will use an open Wi-Fi hotspot under certain conditions and when needed.

I answered No because I do not routinely use any unknown connection, regardless of what type it is, but will do so for very specific reasons and in emergencies.

I only use the Telkom ones (1_Telkom Connect or something)

The open free ones are not my cup of tea...

No, too much of a hassle to log in all the time etc etc for a possible 10min at the mall

Yeah, having to log in really puts me off them.

It was so refreshing when I was China to be able to just connect to a wifi hotspot with zero fuss and get good speeds to.
