Using public WiFi securely with iOS

Optional VPN module in G DATA Mobile Internet Security for iOS out now.

Many people use a public WiFi in cafés, airports or hotels. This offers nu-merous advantages for consumers, but also entails risks. Criminals can exploit these networks to read emails or steal access data. With the op-tional VPN module in G DATA Mobile Internet Security, your digital life remains secret. All movements on the Internet are encrypted and curious spies stays locked out. This also makes online banking and shopping se-cure on public WiFi. Customers who already use G DATA Mobile Internet Security can add on the module as an in-app purchase.

“For users, a public network harbours the risk of sensitive data such as passwords for online shops or email providers being spied on,” explains Tim Berghoff, G DATA Security Evangelist. “Anyone wanting to surf securely and anonymously should rely on a VPN solution that reliably protects the data traffic and privacy of users.”

How G DATA VPN works

The VPN module in G DATA Mobile Internet Security encrypts all Internet traffic, whether in a WiFi or wireless network, worldwide. The virtual private network builds a type of tunnel and not only protects the user's digital identity but also prevents data thieves from seeing it. Personal data is shielded and effectively protected by secure servers. With the integrated G DATA VPN, users do not need an additional app to protect their privacy on public networks.

  • Encryption of all incoming and outgoing data
  • No traffic limit
  • Automatic or manual connection to VPN servers in 32 countries, including the USA, South Africa and Japan
  • Compression of HTTP connections to save monthly data volumes
