The team at cybersecurity experts ThreatMetrix put together this superb infographic about the dangers of being hacked literally any time, any place – even when you’re innocently having a latte and a Danish. It’s wonderful to have the freedom to work or browse wherever it’s convenient, but you could be leaving yourself open to all sorts of threats.

If you’re using a shared wi-fi or hotspot, you’re potentially vulnerable. But there are other subtle dangers as well – that guy with the phone behind you could be filming you as you type in your PIN and photographing your credit card. And if you see a USB stick that’s been left behind on a table – don’t stick it into your laptop to find out what’s on it! It could be a Trojan.

Be security-conscious when you’re on the move, and ensure that your mobile devices are as protected as your home or office equipment.
