    Internet and Wifi Security While Traveling...

    I purchased my TF for an upcoming 2-month trip to Southeast Asia. Internet browsing and emailing aside, I will also need to do some online banking and airline ticket purchasing from time to time. Most all of this will be done using local 'free' Wifi. I am not particularly paranoid, but will want to take some 'reasonable' precaution. The travel is purely personal, and I will not need to connect with company or home PC's.

    I believe GMail, banks and airline websites all feature "HTTPS" with encryption nowadays, so I should be OK even when using my TF at public Wifi sites, correct? If not, then what additional steps should I take? Install a VPN on my TF? What's a free, easy to install and reasonably secure VPN? Or some other solutions aside from VPN?

    ADDENDUM: Coming to think of it, can someone confirm that both the stock Email app and the Gmail app on TF utilize HTTPS and are thus encrypted? Thanks in advance.
