is it safe to enter banking and credit card numbers over a wi-fi area at a college that requires you to enter your login credentials before accessing the wi-fi? i've always felt like phone tethering to the laptop is the best way to send information that is private like this. how can i securely submit my information?

Can I ask why you don't do this at home? Surely it would be easier? :o

It's probably safe, but you never know there could be students that are sniffing :P
