AnchorFree has released AnchorFree Hotspot Shield, free security software for Wi-Fi users. The software application provides security and protects user privacy at Wi-Fi locations and addresses the growing industry need for a secure VPN to protect millions of users´ privacy.
The AnchorFree Hotspot Shield can be easily downloaded for free and provides consumers with private and secure access to the web through an encrypted VPN channel. The free download protects consumers from hackers, as well as operators looking to sneak cookies on the user´s computers and invade their privacy.
AnchorFree Hotspot Shield protects Wi-Fi users´ privacy in the following ways: Provides anonymity and privacy; Auto encrypts all online interactions and protects user security; Prevents hackers from intercepting personal data; Offers professional-standard security and protection.
“Now there´s a free solution designed to help Wi-Fi users address security concerns; this will greatly expand the use of access to email, VoIP calls, instant messaging and general use of the web,” said David Gorodyansky, president & co-Founder of AnchorFree. “Ease of use has historically been a big problem with securing municipal Wi-Fi networks. You can have the best encryption out there, but if someone can´t set it up easily, it won´t ever be used.”
The AnchorFree Hotspot Shield software can be easily and quickly downloaded and runs on Windows 2000 or higher. The company plans to release the AnchorFree Hotspot Shield software that is compatible with Apple Computers soon.
