Personal Data Just One More Thing For Travelers To Safeguard

Jun 28, 2018

Most of us know when we travel to safeguard our personal possessions. You pay attention to where your passport is kept. You might put your money in a discreet pocket or one of those around-the-neck pouches under your shirt.

But experts say it's just as important to safeguard your digital life while traveling.

Easy access to the internet – especially while you’re traveling and using public wi-fi networks – can put your information at risk.

Conde Nast Traveler recently wrote a story on this issue. For KNKX travel expert Matthew Brumley, who has been traveling professionally for more than 20 years, it was a real wake-up call.

We discuss his takeaways, on this week’s “Going Places.”
