Sure, public networks (both wired and wireless) are great. After all, what would life be without connecting while at airports, hotels, coffee shops and more.
But while you're connecting to any open network - even if you pay an access fee from a recognized provider, you’re still at risk of insecurely sending your data over the wires and airways. Your passwords, credit card numbers, and any data you send can be seen and associated with you personally. Standard antivirus software won't protect you as this threat is on the network, not your laptop or iPhone.
That's why AnchorFree is pleased to offer Hotspot Shield. This free privacy/security software keeps your Internet connection secure and anonymous on public networks: including hotels, airports, coffee shops, even work and home.
