Complicated Password storage
You know one thing that a lot of people take for granted, is how safe and secure their passwords really are. I'm sure that there has to be a better and safer way to generate and take care of so that it isn't easy for people to hack into all of that data that you have in storage! Sadly, it seems a bit too tedious to make use of an application to help you keep track of all of your passwords than it is to just come up with an easy password for yourself and that's where the security of your home systems fail...

Nothing is impossible
Cyberattacks are becoming ever too common today so it is entirely up to us to protect our online activities as well as those of our loved ones. Sometimes we become nonchalant of our digital habits because we have never been cyberattacked before. However, we need to know that nothing is impossible and attackers do not choose their victims so just about anyone could fall prey.

Re: Public Hotspots
Great point, yes myfi can work well instead of using airport wifi. Keep the good ideas coming everyone. I know I didn't think of everything. I think the main point is for people not to feel paralyzed, but on the other hand, know there's potential risk and the threat is real. Too many SMBs and private citizens unconnected with the computer industry still feel that the threat is overblown. That their small bank, insurance company or dentist's office in the Midwest or the South won't get hit. I think as corporate America gets better with security the attackers will prey on small businesses and private citzens. There's just such a reservoir of people and companies for them to hack. Some people will buy in to Cyber Hygiene, others won't. People may just have to learn the hard way.

Public Hotspots
In the past 10 years technology has increased to the point where myfi is a very viable option. Where utilizing a myfi device through your phone carrier or using your phone as a personal hotspot or tether you can easily access the internet without connecting to an "untrusted" public hotspot. Data plan permitting I would recommend this option over connecting to wifi provided by airports or retail stores.
