Seriously, treat ANY public network as insecure.

In-flight wifi provider Gogo has been caught doing a man-in-the-middle attack, basically by issuing fraudulent certificates to its users.

This allows Gogo to eavesdrop even on SSL connections, which would normally be secure. It’s an enormous breach of trust.

Your only real defense here is to use a VPN, but it turns out there are several to choose from.
