I am using a laptop with dual boot Windows and Ubuntu. In addition, I am having another Linux distro installed on a usb thumb drive and using it only for certain things.
Generally speaking - if android devices are vulnerable in terms of privacy and security, does that mean that my linux will be vulnerable too if I use the Hotspot from android devices?
Are Mifi devices, all these jetpacks, any better than a smartphone for security and privacy?
Getting a mifi, a good plan simcard and using a Linux distro on a USB should be better than, using my linux installed on the laptop alongside with windows, and using my android phone as a hotspot?
I have access to unlimited data from a broadband provider, but don't have access to their hub3 device and can't configure any settings and I think its very unsecured as it is now. So that's why I am using mobile data for my laptop, thinking its more secure.
Would getting a mifi, mobile simcard and using a Linux distro on a USB thumb drive be a good idea?
