In response to the Coronavirus outbreak and the closure of businesses and libraries, many of us are spending more time online.  As a result, we may need to use public Wi-Fi to connect to the internet. If you do find yourself needing to use public Wi-Fi, please consider these recommendations from the state Chief Privacy Officer to help protect your data.
