We use our smartphones for messaging, shopping, banking and facebooking. However, did you know that someone can easily read your messages, steal your logins, passwords and credit card details?
If hackers want to steal your data, they may act when your communicating. As long your private information is being transmitted over unsecured Wi-Fi network, your personal photos, financial data and everything you send, search, download or upload can be easily captured and exploited by cyber-thieves.
Even if you are connected to a recognizable Wi-Fi network, your device has no way of distinguishing a securely encrypted public Wi-Fi from one that is not.
Avast has developed a FREE app that solves this problem. Avast SecureMe protects your smartphone while connected to Wi-Fi.
How does it work? Avast SecureMe is a VPN service that protects you from data theft by using a virtual encryption 'tunnel' to secure your internet connections.
