The New York City Wi-Fi kiosks were recently shut down due to users who decided to use the devices for porn viewing. Other public devices have also been the target of hackers. Luckily there is a solution to prevent these issues: kiosk software.
We agree with the writer here. Not sure what the problem is with LinkNYC.
Excerpt: There have been a number of articles lately about public devices being misused for porn use, for example, or being at risk of allowing unauthorized access to private user information. While it is no surprise that these situations arise due to improper security measures, if the kiosks were configured using kiosk system software, there would be no such security issues or device misuse.
