most web based systems have SSL now, that is pretty good anymore. IF you are running a linux box somewhere on the web you can trust, you can proxy all your traffic through it using http via ssh, but that is complicated.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. - Benjamin Franklin 1775
What data are you talking about? On your computer or just what you send to/from the internet?
About the only true way to keep your data safe is to use a VPN. You get on the unencrypted wifi network, and then you VPN tunnel back to someplace you trust (your home, your office, etc.). All your traffic goes through the encrypted VPN tunnel.
If you're talking about the data that's just on your computer, then encrypt your entire hard drive also.
May my postings be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)
