Hi, I have a friend who is traveling in Europe soon.  They'll be on public WiFi all the time, wherever they go, and they're concerned about doing things like online banking.

They asked me if they got a good VPN (I use StrongVPN), if that would be secure, because the connection between them and the outside world would be encrypted.

I didn't know the answer, so I am coming to the experts. What's the safest, most secure way for them to connect to online banking while on a public WiFi?

Thanks!
