How paranoid do I need to be about allowing my phone to connect to open/unencrypted WiFi hotspots?
I don't really care if other people see my data (email being received or sent, stock quotes, whatever). I think all I really care about is whether they see my passwords (Gmail, Facebook, etc).
I understand I probably don't want to initiate a connection to a financial institution, and that I'm potentially subject to man-in-the-middle attacks even if my passwords aren't cleartext.
Please note that I am aware of this question and its answer, and it doesn't really answer my question because it's just about the data: What Android sync'd data is encrypted?
If this question has already been asked and answered, please point me to it. I searched with the built-in engine and Google and couldn't find it.
