An App That Can Make Public Wifi Safe

An App That Can Make Public Wifi Safe

If you use public wifi or travel much you are probably aware of the need for Virtual Private Networks (VPN) to route your data through secure networks when using open public networks. Cool Mom Tech found a new app for iPhone and iPad that is easy to use and gives you the security you seek. The pricing information on iTunes and that Cool Mom Tech reports is not correct – you pay by the month for this no matter your level of usage – but for those who need the security, the price is worth it. Cool Mom Tech explains,

Having worked with a security company for years on the PR side, I'm super vigilant about what information I put out there, and more importantly, what networks I use to access information. (Those cybercriminals are more sophisticated than you can ever imagine.) I never do any kind of online banking or shopping from an unsecure WiFi network, but with the new Private WiFi app for iOS, I finally have the option to do so.
