I’m a busy Mom. Probably just like many of you. Do you find yourself often running errands around town, chauffeuring the kids, and snagging any few minutes you can here and there on your mobile device to check messages, shop, or do work? Using public WiFi is essential to keeping our phone data down, and it’s really quite a lifesaver for many of us busy moms. But have you thought about just how safe is public WiFi?
Stay safe on public WiFi
As I said, I’m a busy mom. What mom isn’t these days right? And I work at home. Which means I’m often working on the go. I squeeze in any few minutes I can here and there as I’m hauling kids to Dentist appointments, eye exams, a quick trip to the park, etc.
Yes we have been known to stop in for a quick fast food lunch just so I can get some down time in all the running. And while there I snag a few minutes while the kids are playing to check some emails and send some emails.
I have also taken this time to do some sneaky birthday shopping online as well. But Public WiFi has always daunted me. I mean just how secure is it? Well it’s not very secure. It’s public after all. It doesn’t have the same privacy settings I do at home. It doesn’t have my firewalls or extra protection from hackers that I place through our router at our house.
But I still need to get my work done. And without using up my entire month’s worth of Data on my phone in a single trip. No I need to utilize the public WiFi.
That is where Freedome comes into play. A few weeks ago I mentioned the importance of using a private VPN from F-secure. In less than 2 minutes I downloaded it and installed it onto my mobile devices. And let me tell you I have been amazed at what it has blocked and protected me from!
In just the 2 short weeks I’ve been using Freedome, I’ve really been impressed with what it has protected me from. Let me show you.
This is just with using public WiFi a portion of the time, because I’ve been home more often the last 2 weeks than I normally am. So just think about that. Had I been out of the home and using public WiFi like normal, those numbers would be even higher!
And even with all the protection I have at home, I still installed Freedome on my home laptop. Would you like to see how much it has protected me the last 2 weeks? And again, that is with less than normal usage for my laptop as well!
I love that I can see right away how much Freedome VPN is protecting our privacy at home and while on the go.
