Wireless internet connections have made virtually everything simpler. Easy access in places like restaurants, shops, parks, and airplanes make online transactions and communications possible almost anywhere. Like any other technology, however, this amazing convenience also comes with risks. Public Wi-Fi hotspots in particular often lack security, making them more vulnerable to criminal hackers. Trend Micro’s VPN Proxy One turns a public hotspot into a secure Wi-Fi via Virtual Private Network (VPN) with bank-grade data encryption to keep your information protected from hackers.
