    I've never trusted WiFi etc. And especially now that we have all these insecure phones and IoT devices to serve as attack points.

    WiFi can be an issue. One mitigating possibility is to learn how to "lock down" your device to a specific tun0. I am currently using a wireless laptop which is encrypted and only allows pings in or out via ONE vpn tunnel. Any other attempts to enter the machine are summarily blocked. This is also great for being on a hostile LAN as well. Therefore; if a hacker/wireless invader grabs my data going back and forth they would have NO way to decrypt the contents of their capture. I primarily use Cat6 but at times wireless is the only thing that works for "where" I am.
