Norton Security is well-known for offering anti-virus and internet security software. The company’s newest service offers security for public Wi-Fi, allowing you to keep your devices safe even while using unsecured public internet connections.
Public Wi-Fi is often necessary when you’re on the go, and it does have its merits. For one, it’s a convenient way to save on mobile data costs, and it allows you to stay connected when you’re not at home. Public internet is not always the safest option, though. Since these internet connections are unsecured and not private, they can leave your information vulnerable to hackers as well as companies that track your online activity. This means you could be exposing private data like passwords and bank information every time you check your email or log into your bank account.
There are some steps you can take to protect yourself while using public Wi-Fi. For instance, you can avoid accessing websites that hold your sensitive information, like bank accounts. Still, sometimes you’re out shopping and you need to know how much money you have left, or you need to check an email from a friend to see where they are. That’s where Norton Wi-Fi Privacy comes in to make sure your devices are safe and secure.
Norton WiFi Privacy Features
Norton Wi-Fi Privacy protects any data you may send or receive while using public WiFi. WiFi Privacy keeps your sensitive information secure while you use your laptop, smartphone or tablet. It uses bank-grade encryption for the ultimate protection, and it reroutes your data through a virtual private network that doesn’t track or store your activity. It blocks advertising companies from tracking your activity, and prohibits anyone from seeing your location. It also allows you to switch virtual locations, which means you can access global content more easily. All of this means Norton WiFi Privacy will keep your online identity and online activity anonymous, so you can browse in peace.
Norton Wi-Fi Privacy is able to make your public internet connection into a private one. You can access all of your favorite content and apps that you would use at home, without worrying about security. For people who often have to work in public areas, or regularly connect their phones to public Wi-Fi, this is a life-saver. With this service, you can pay bills while working at the local cafe or check your account balances at the airport.
