How To Prevent Identity Theft

Its insane how common identity theft is now. Several years ago one of my friends had strange charges show up on his credit card 4 or 5 times over a few months, I just assumed he was using his card at shady places.
But then my mom had her identity completely stolen. They got all of her banking information, made a fake divers license in her name, and started racking up thousands of dollars in charges at department stores. Not only was it a huge hassle to get all of her charges reversed, it was painful to see my mom be so scared about someone else knowing so much about her and running around town acting as if she were my mom.

When someone knows who you are, has your address, and is committing crimes in your name, its horrifying.

What I didn’t know was that a huge amount of identity theft happens at wifi hotspots like at Starbucks or in a hotel. Other people on the network are able to see the websites you surf and whatever you type into your browser. Passwords, emails, credit card info, whatever you do, its up for grabs.

I recently installed a copy of WifiSugar from It protects your computer against hackers attacking your computer over wireless internet connections.

As a freelance artist I work remotely a lot and travel frequently for work. I have to connect my laptop to random WIFI connections to do work. Getting WifiSugar gave me such peace of mind that I bought a copy for my mom too. Having her feel secure is so worth it to me.

My Review of WifiSugar

Everyone knows that hacking is a huge problem and that identity theft is on the rise everywhere. Because I work on my laptop in public places a lot, I knew that I was putting myself at risk.

Hackers often connect to public or open wifi connections to spy on other people connected to that same network. I had read that in addition to anti-virus software, everyone should have a copy of network security software like WifiSugar from

There are a couple of other programs like WifiSugar, but I couldn't find anything that beat it. WifiSugar works on PCs. MACs, iPads and phones, and one subscription will let me use it on all my computers, so I didn't have to buy a copy for each one! 

The setup was super simple – you can download the files to install it and then just press a few buttons to get it working.

WifiSugar works like this.

1) You connect your laptop to the cafe or hotels wifi connection
2) Your click on the icon for WifiSugar that’s on your desktop
3) That's it! You're protected against hackers!

When WifiSugar is running it scrambles the data that your computer sends out over the wireless connection to no one can see what you're doing or steal your passwords.

There isn't any impact on my computer's performance and it runs in the background without any pop ups or annoying notifications.

As someone who travels for work constantly it is great to know that my emails and my client's files can't be stolen by hackers. I really can't recommend it enough..
