NEW YORK, NY--(Dec 14, 2015) PRIVATE WiFi announced today the issuance to it by the US Patent Office of a patent that automatically turns on VPN protection when a mobile user switches to an unsecure WiFi connection, and automatically turns on data compression when a user switches to a cellular connection. PRIVATE WiFi is the only patented app to automatically compress and protect data.
PRIVATE WiFi, a VPN which optimizes your data plan, provides serious privacy protection. PRIVATE WiFi uses 128-bit encryption, the same technology used by your bank or your credit card company. But we use it to secure everything you send and receive—web traffic, emails, and IMs. By rerouting your data through an encrypted server in another location, you stay anonymous. No government, advertiser, website, malware, or hacker can track you.
PRIVATE WiFi also compresses data, which lets you squeeze more value from your mobile plan by helping you use less data. It quickly shrinks pictures and text, and delivers the right sized content fast. No matter what data plan you have, it always pays to use less.
PRIVATE WiFi has developed patented technology which automatically detects when a user switches from a cellular connection to an unsecure WiFi connection and immediately turns on encryption. Most mobile phones connect automatically to WiFi networks when they’re available, which means that users run the risk of exposing themselves to hackers who can steal all information going into and out of a phone over public WiFi. Using our technology, users don’t have to remember to turn on encryption; it happens automatically in the background.
This same technology also automatically detects when a user is accessing a cellular network, and immediately turns on data compression to help the user save money on their data plan. So users can save money without having to do anything!
PRIVATE WiFi runs invisibly in the background. The software installs in minutes. Once installed and activated, it creates a secure connection in seconds and starts compressing data immediately.
PRIVATE WiFi is patented technology that encrypts and compresses automatically. With PRIVATE WiFi, you can be safe on WiFi and save money on cellular.
About Public WiFi Online Identity Risks
Public WiFi usage has been increasing exponentially in recent years due to its convenience and accessibility. These days, you can access the Internet from just about anywhere: coffee shops, airports, public libraries, hotel rooms, and just about any other public place. However, most of us are not aware of the dangers inherent to public WiFi.
WiFi networks use radio waves to connect computers and mobile devices to one another. This means that when you connect to a public network, you are basically exposing all of your computer files, including personal data such as credit card information, passwords, and social security numbers, to anyone within that network. With the right software, easily available on the Internet, hackers can use sniffers to steal any unencrypted data on a public WiFi network. It could even be the guy sipping his coffee at the table right next to you.
The best way to protect your sensitive information is to use a Virtual Private Network, or VPN, which encrypts the data moving to and from your laptop or mobile device. The encryption protects all your Internet communication from being intercepted by others in WiFi hotspots. In addition, VPNs can prevent hackers from connecting to your laptop or mobile device and stealing your data files.
Most large companies have a company-support VPN to protect corporate communications. PRIVATE WiFi provides the same capability for individuals, business travelers, and small and medium-sized enterprises.
