Re: Linux ( mint ) safe to use via wifi?
Most VPNs encrypt your data before it leaves your computer, so even if the network is being inspected, the one inspecting it would only see encrypted stuff.
You should also have a good firewall in place. Mint has one, but it's disabled by default, so enable it and you should be all right.
