The Island's police are warning the Manx public of the potential risks of using WiFi networks.

The Isle of Man Constabulary have been highlighting ways to use the internet safely this week, including advice for using social media and online banking.

Officers warn anyone can set up a wireless hotspot, and urges those using an unfamiliar network to ensure they read the terms and conditions in order to know exactly what they're agreeing to.
