The New Year has only just begun but you might already be looking forward to your first chance to get away for a holiday or perhaps your resolution is to go out and see more of the world.
No matter your reason for heading off travelling, you might want to stay particularly vigilant during your next visit to an airport.
That's because one simple act there could end up costing you a lot of money, without you even realising it.
According to law enforcement in the US, using public USB charging stations at airports could cause your bank account to be drained as hackers are infecting ports with malware as part of a scam known as 'juice jacking."
Luke Sisak, Los Angeles Deputy district attorney explained the dangers of juice jacking in a recent video shared on his office's website.
He said: "A free charge could end up draining your bank account.
"Criminals load malware onto charging stations or tables they leave at the kiosk.
"Once the unsuspecting user plugs in, their phone or electronic device becomes infected."
Instead of using public USB ports, travellers are advised to instead use power outlets and take their own plug-in chargers and car chargers on journeys.
It may also be a good idea to keep a portable charger with you at all times.
Juice jacking has been an ongoing issue since 2011.
The malware that hackers use can lock you out of your device and export your passwords, addresses or potentially even a full backup of your phone to criminals.
