Is Shaw Go Wi-Fi Secure?
Shaw Go Wifi is a shared network. Connecting to it poses the same security risks as connecting to any unsecured network, much like ones at coffee shops. In other words, no it is not a encrypted connection and anyone with a Shaw email address can join.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
Does that mean I should avoid using my CIBC app on ShawGo Wifi?
Banking websites should be encrypted which will make them more secure. I personally would use online banking while connected to a shared network like Shaw Go Wifi but I do tend to live on the edge a bit . If you are nervous about it then I would use caution and stick to banking when you are at home.
Any way I can talk my sister into using it? She's up to a 4gig mobile data plan now, expensive. Thanks to Shaw Go I'm able to stay within my 500mb plan.

patdaigle3 you could always get a VPN service to keep it simple! I personally use ProXPN -- theres a basic free version -- Tunnelbear is pretty good too! (also has a free version)
