Public Wi-Fi networks should be used with caution, because these networks aren't safe.

If you are new to networking, I recommend you watch some videos about CCNA and Wireshark.

You never see/get packets if someone is doing a man in the middle attack so wireshark is a waste of time.

I know someone who has his own private server. He mentioned that while on a public wifi he can log into his server and find out what info they are collecting. Is this possible?

 

Regards
