PRIVATE WiFi Joins AOL’s Security Suite

Elaine Rigoli

We are happy to announce an exciting partnership with AOL to offer fully licensed subscriptions of our flagship software on AOL's Lifestore.com.

This means that AOL users can immediately download a 30-day free trial of PRIVATE WiFi and/or purchase a monthly subscription for $9.99. There is no commitment, so users can cancel at any time without penalties.

Those who participate in the AOL Members Benefits program can download up to three complimentary PRIVATE WiFi licenses for their laptops, which if purchased separately would amount to an annual retail expense of nearly $360.

According to CEO Kent Lawson, this partnership with AOL offers an easy-to-use solution to protect consumers from public WiFi threats.

"With our simple software solution, PRIVATE WiFi protects you from hackers and identity thieves in any public hotspot – any time, any place,” said Lawson.

In addition, AOL will offer fully licensed subscriptions of PRIVATE WiFi to select AOL Advantage Plan members at no additional cost. AOL’s Advantage plans provide paid AOL members with a comprehensive and powerful suite of premium online security services.

"At AOL, we have made it our mission to continually seek out premium products to help our members easily take control and protect their identity, personal information and privacy, online and off," said Bud Rosenthal, senior vice president at AOL.

"PRIVATE WiFi is a great complement to these offerings given its robust online protection and ease of use."

The need for better online safety training to prevent data breaches is a hot topic right now.
