There’s a good reason hackers love free public WiFi. It’s because they can easily access information on unsecured WiFi networks. So when you’re in a coffee shop or an airport checking your emails or paying bills while on public WiFi, you could be letting cybercriminals spy on your sensitive and personal information. VPNs, or virtual private networks, like Norton Secure VPN can turn those public WiFi hotspots into secured private connections. Watch this short (30 seconds) video to see how a VPN could give you a new sense of security on WiFi.

Your device may not be secure.

Public Wi-Fi isn’t always safe. Without the right protection, your personal information could become public. Protect yourself with Norton Secure VPN. It encrypts the personal information you send and receive on public Wi-Fi to help keep it private wherever you want to log on.

Help protect your information with Norton Secure VPN.
