Im worried as I bought something online using my mobile on an airport network

Every week a Guardian Money reader submits a question, and its up to you to help him or her out a selection of the best answers will appear in next Saturdays paper.

While in the airport last week I went online and purchased something over my smartphone. My partner said I was mad because I was using the airports open-access wifi. Is it really that dangerous? Can crooks get your card details that easily? Should I now cancel my card?
