Risky connection

I was not aware that surfing the Internet on a public WiFi network was very risky. However, my best friend Jack informed me about that and now, I am thinking about downloading Hotspot Shield Elite, the private vpn software that is second to none when it comes to offering protection from any potential exposure to identity theft. However, before I actually download it, I will watch a YouTube video about it and make sure that I know most of its features, so that I can use them to their fullest. So, if I were you, I would watch that YouTube video without any further delays.
