If you are like everyone else, then you probably use public Wi-Fi quite frequently.

Many public connections are not secure and can cause you to become vulnerable to hackers and government surveillance agencies who can view and steal personal and essential information from your devices.

Mask your identity and add a privacy layer to any connection - Public or Secured

Hide your IP address and better hide your Digital Fingerprints

Change your IP in Public Hotspots

Block these annoying ads making your surfing easier

To enable us to block unwanted ads and provide you with safe browsing features, we need to access and collect certain information, such as: URLs you click, the ads displayed for you and your interaction with the ads, history, click stream data, and IP address.
