Security in Public Wi-Fi Networks

This survey is part of an ongoing research project investigating the security risks associated with public Wi-Fi networks. In today's digital world, the use of public Wi-Fi networks has led to users unknowingly exposing themselves to various security threats. This study aims to understand these risks, focusing on the lack of awareness among users and the lack of measures in place to protect devices and data.

Please note that this survey is intended for individuals who are 18 years of age or older. If you are under 18 years old, we kindly ask you to refrain from participating.
