If you are connecting your computer or any other device to a public WiFi network, it is absolutely possible for anyone to intercept your private data. Anything you type onto the screen is accessible. Typically, anything that appears on the screen can be accessible by hackers and sniffers. Others accessing the same network can see your traffic.

It's always advisable to be cautious with sending private data on a public WiFi.
