In an effort to counter the attempts made by hackers to access sensitive information of people connected to public hotspots, and to establish a means of secured connectivity, Norton by Symantec has introduced Norton Wi-Fi Privacy, an easy to use mobile app for Android and iOS devices.
The Norton Wi-Fi Privacy uses sophisticated and military grade encryption technology to scramble information that is sent and received over a Wi-Fi network to help protect their information and identity online. This application is ready for purchase in the iTunes and Goggle play app stores. A yearly subscription service is approx. AED 110, which includes protection for one mobile device and 24/7 in-app support. PC, Mac and multi-device availability is coming soon.
“We know many customers believe that using a password to access public Wi-Fi means their information is safe, but that’s not necessarily the case. When using any public Wi-Fi, whether password protected or open, users should be cautious as cybercriminals can easily leverage these connections to access the sensitive information you are sending and receiving,” said Tamim Taufiq, Head of Middle East Partnerships, Norton by Symantec. “Norton Wi-Fi Privacy helps protect information, such as passwords and credit card numbers, and denies access to hackers who may be eavesdropping on the same network.”
