Friends i have a situation here. I am not very aware of how network and wifi security works but in my life i've always used few simple rules
- never join public wifi
- always use two step verification on all your accounts and emails
I recently moved from android to an iphone. I have very strong mobile carrier plan with unlimited mobile network with it. I've always used that mobile network when out of home, never logged to public wifi.
Thing is with iphone, as you probably know, there are some restrictions that wont allow you to do download/update bigger apps and software updates without wifi no matter what.
So since away from home when i realized that these restrictions are on on my device i was forced to use public wifi (family dinner restoraunt). I had to donwload a few bigger apps from the app store and to update my software (IOS) I was logged to gmail, facebook, apple id from the moment i bought my device month ago.
So, i logged to the public wifi, downloaded the apps, updated the software and forgot the network. I never typed in any passwords. I also never safe any passwords on my safari/browsers and i dont use keychain. Not to mention i have two step verification on everywhere, and also i have facebook notification that will infrom me if someone tries to log in from somewhere else.
So my question is, if there was a hacker, could he have somehow took my passwords as long as i never typed them while on the wifi? I know there is term called credential hijacking but i have no idea what it is. As far as i know apps and istes like facebook gmail have htppps or the way it's spelled that is supposed to protect against any stealing. If the hacker somehow steals my credentials, will two factor verification/authentication stop him or he will be able to log in from his device tricking facebook/gmail that its my own device. In other words is there any reason i should worry. I know the chances of hacker in the restoraunts are low but lets assume the worst scenario .. THanks
