Stay Secure On Public Wifi #Privacyisnogame

Disclosure: I am a brand ambassador for F-Secure Freedome and receive compensation for my participation. All thoughts and opinions are my own

We all know that privacy is a big deal in the digital world. It’s something we take for granted. We log in to our online banking, we do our shopping on line, and even email personal information out. The question is, how safe are we really?

It is scary to look into how many times hackers are hijacking personal information from out smart phones. They can take advantage of us using a public wi fi network, even in places we trust. Did you know that a hacker can actually ‘suck information’ out of our smartphones using public Wi-Fi networks? I had never thought about it. Think about all of the information stored on your smart phone. It’s more vulnerable than you realize.

In the “Great WiFi Experiment” F-Secure shows how real of a threat free WiFi really is.

So what is Freedome? It is a Virtual Private Network that encrypts your data usage, prevents tracking, and allows you to surf the web while traveling as if you were at home. You get to select your virtual location.  This is great for services like Netflix which can be different in other countries. You get privacy and protection and it is so easy to use. Just install the app, and turn it on.

I have been using Freedome for about a week. I have mostly been home, so I have been on my own WiFi. I should be safe right? Wrong. Not only are hackers after your information, but advertisers too. Since I installed Freedome, 491 tracking attempts have been blocked, 491! Wow. I am still shocked that number was so high.

Freedome is available on a 14 day trial on iTunes, Google Play or for your Windows PC, but we have a 90 day trial code for you! Enter code qsf257 to try it for 90 days. See how many times you have been protected in those 90 days. I guarantee you will be as shocked as I was!

  7. Treat your credit card like a newborn baby. Never let it out of your sight. Follow it. Hotel and airport internet use age are probably very dangerous. Life on Earth is difficult. I will look into your new ideas! Thanks!
