When the smartphone tries to verify a hotspot, evildoers can read the authorization data and then use it to gain control of the device. Wi-Fi is vulnerable as it is, but when combined with this smartphone bug, it can be used to steal the user's personal information, and sometimes access to mobile banking information.
Microsoft still has no data on the possible harm from this bug and they don't have updates and patches for it. Instead of fixing the problem, Microsoft has released a step-by-step guide on how to configure the device to avoid this error.
But there is no guarantee that it will work. To ensure that your personal information is safe, it is better to avoid public hotspots and use a wifi jammer. In that case, this error won't just work. You need to remember that your personal information is really valuable, a lot of big companies have huge profits on sales, so you need to protect them.
