    A Man in the middle attack is when a person uses software to get in between your device and the outside internet. They can then see all your unencrypted web traffic. If this happened when you were connected to your home internet wifi, then you need to secure your router. Reset the router to factory settings and choose a hard to guess password and disable WPS. If this happened on public wifi, disconnect from the network
