YouTube video text script - Security Summit: Be Cautious When Using Wi-Fi

[ music ]

WiFi is a particularly dangerous situation with sensitive information because it's easy for a criminal to intercept that information on a WiFi network.

So anytime you're using WiFi, whether at home or in a public arena, you want to make sure to be vigilant to keep sensitive information secure.

We recommend that taxpayers have sophisticated passwords on their own network, and when they're at a coffee shop or restaurant that has public WiFi, that they refrain from using or sharing sensitive information.

Taxes.  Security.  Together.

Go to irs.gov and type in identity theft in the search box.
