What I do:

I have a reachable personnal computer with an ssh server. Then on my local machine I do:

    ssh -D 9050 username@host
Then in your web browser you should simply use localhost:9050 as SOCKS proxy. Now you're safe about the WiFi sniffers.

I made a short post about this:


Great - Just tested, and it seems to work well (fooling FireSheep).

I downloaded "ProxySwitcher" for Chrome for easy switching between the proxy and direct connection:


Also, if you use firefox, there is a handy addon called "multiproxy switch" which makes handling lots of different proxies much easier.

Thank you. I didn't knew this one. It will be very useful.
