tmm, what you want to look for is in the URL (I believe it stands for Uniform Resource Locator or something like that) at the top of your browser -- the web address. If it starts with https: then you are pretty secure (pretty -- meaning about as secure as you can expect with currently available technology -- this data is encrypted -- the s at the end is the key). http: is plain text and anybody (who might be intercepting the feed) can see everything on the page. It doesn't matter if you are on a wired or wireless network. Of course wireless networks are easier for anybody (including hackers) to monitor because wireless networks broadcast their traffic such that anybody with a receiver can see it.
On a wireless network you are much more exposed than on a wired network.
Executive summary: for critical stuff, insist on https: rather than http: on either wired or wireless networks.
But your data on a wireless network is relatively safe when entered on an an https: site.
