I'm just wondering how secure Shaw Hotspots are? I want to use it on my iPad, but I have my work email (Exchange) on the device, so I won't use it if my information could be compromised. I tried searching the forums and Google for info, but I didn't find much on the topic.
 
Not sure if you got your answer, but although I'm sure Shaw has pretty good security, no Wifi I know of is considered very secure.

Thanks for replying. No, I didn't get any response yet.

Your home wifi is secure (assuming you lock it down). I was just curious if the Shaw hotspots offered similar security because of the login requirement. I'm assuming not, as it's still technically an open network.
