To some people (mostly security and / or network professionals), this
is blindingly obvious -- to those who aren't, this may be news.

It's pretty clear that there are sniffers active in the space.  We've
had people try to hack machines or web sessions before, and I'm not
saying there are SSL hacks, but consider that https://noisebridge.net
is hardcoded into Google Chrome's source code.

You may wish to consider a VPN, and/or disable mobile devices.
