Last week I posted about a fabulous new security product called Freedome which protects your online surfing and activity across all your devices- phone, tablet, computer. It provides the average internet user with the expert tools that savvy surfers use to protect their online presence and their Wi-Fi connections regardless of where they connect or how they surf. It keeps your surfing private and untraceable, removes geo-restrictions on your online activity, protects you on public Wi-Fi connections, and blocks bad apps and harmful sites. You can read my other post here and you can also enter to win a Apple Watch Sport, an iPad Mini 3 Wi-Fi 16GB AND a free 12mo subscription to F-Secure Freedome® VPN!
Today I've got a great video to share with you about how the Freedome VPN app actually works- check it out:
It's such a simple solution to the problem that ALL online users have! Making sure you stay safe and secure while on any of your devices, on any public wifi, or your home wifi!
I've been playing around with the app for a little while and it's very simple to use. Just open the app and you're ready to use the internet safely and securely. One of the features that interests me the most is the ability to choose ‘where' you are surfing from- for the best connection, you should choose an area close to you. But as you can see from this screen shot, you can easily able to route your VPN through another location anywhere in the world. I chose the UK to see what streaming content I'd have access to that would normally be blocked to me, being that I'm located in the US. But Freedome allows me to appear as though I'm surfing from another location, and that means I can stream all kinds of content from the BBC website. As a total Anglophile when it comes to programming, that makes me unabashedly ecstatic. I'll be able to watch Downton Abbey *as it shows across the pond*!!! I just watched the first episode of the new series of The Great British Baking Show. I favorited about a half-dozen other things to watch before I tore myself away.
I know the developers behind Freedome intend for it first and foremost to be a safety measure, and in this it appears to work quite well. It reports that it's blocking lots of tracking attempts and it's certainly easy and unobtrusive to use. But what excites me most is the access it provides to programming in other countries. What does Denmark have to offer? Finland? What's going on in Canada or India? I'm absolutely going to find out, and I can rest assured that I'll be surfing safely and securely the whole time.
