1) Does it matter if you download in a public area? What I mean is how dangerous is downloading a public area vs in your home?


2) Does it matter if you install a program through an ethernet connection or wi-fi connection. I was told you should always install programs through ethernet because it's safer. What's the chance I could get hacked or put my laptop in any sort of danger through installing a program on a wi-fi connection
