OK. Way behind the times here I know but I'm thinking of buying a tablet PC as a gift. My concern is being able to have a secure connection on the go because the only real purpose for getting this thing would be for the recipient to be able to log into his bank account, brokerage accounts, retailer websites, etc and perform transactions while away from home.
I've heard that free wifi hot spots are dangerous because the connections are not secure. What about cellular services like Tracfone? Are connections through their services secure (assuming a tablet PC can be used with their services since it's not actually a cell phone)?
Trying to figure out how to connect safely... either while traveling somewhere or at some destination.
