Is Wireless Internet (Wi-Fi) safe and secure?

Sometimes it’s completely insecure, sometimes it’s fairly safe depending on the data encryption used. But even if the wireless technology is good you must remember that data you send will always be readable by the service operator, and you may not even know who that is, and certainly not that all their staff are trustworthy. The only safe option is to use your own additional encryption such as SSL/TLS if you are doing anything sensitive on someone else's Wi-Fi service.
