I was reading this question today: Does KRACK mean that wifi cafes will never be safe again? and thought to myself.. OK I will just use mobile data instead of public wifi's.
But then my next question was, how can I guarantee that my mobile data cannot be intercepted.
Doing a bit of internet searching I found articles such as this one: HACKER SPOOFS CELL PHONE TOWER TO INTERCEPT CALLS
which says things like:
The device tricks the phones into disabling encryption and records call details and content before they're routed on their proper way through voice-over-IP.
But this talks about calls in particular.
Can the same be done to data?
i.e. HTTPS and E2EE messages?
I visit https://www.WebsiteThatRequiresaPassword.com on my mobile via mobile data and type my username and password in, can someone intercept and read my password?
