Can I access open Airport WiFis?

Is it safe to use Public Airport WiFis? I have heard that it is not preferred to use open WiFi due to security concerns? Can anyone please guide me? Reply to this

Use them quite often but I'm mindful of what I do on public systems so no internet banking or anything that could be picked up by another user In response to: Msg #207930 Reply to this

I have heard a quite few times about Man-in-the-middle attack and that over public WiFi you personal information can be stolen, so is there anything we can do to be secure while connected on Public WiFi?In response to: Msg #207931 Reply to this

I've used public wifi in airports, coffee shops, and other spots. The most important thing, as traveltalesofawoollymammoth noted, is to avoid anything sensitive like online banking. Looking up travel info is normally safe. If you have to input a credit card or personal info, do it somewhere else with fewer people around. Finally, if you choose to read your email, make sure your email provider uses the strongest encryption available.
