Experian's tips for vacation travel
Experian has an article giving advice on avoiding tech scams while on summer vacations.
Attackers may set up similarly spelled names to legitimate hotel servers within a few hundred feet of the hotel.
Experian recommends either getting a VPN or using the hotspot from your own smartphone provider (which can be put on the phone or be a separate physical device – although the latter means one more electronics item to get through the TSA).
Experian has a separate article on preparations before leaving home for the airport. It recommends limiting the credit cards you carry to just two or three, and contacting your credit card company for these cards. It is also advisable to contact your home security company.
