This question already has an answer here:
I will be away for 1 month and during that time period I will have Internet access only via public wifi networks.
I tried finding on the net tutorial on how to safely access and handle paypal payments, but I found advises on either buying a VPN or using Hamachi to access always-on PC. I don't have access to always-on PC and I would not like to pay for VPN if I don't have to. The other reason is that VPNs would slow down already slow public wifi connections.
Is there a way I can safely connect to public wifi and make paypal transactions?
I would be connecting to public wifis using PC laptop (win 7) or Android mobile phone.
