Cyber criminals can see and can steal the info you send and receive on WiFi, even if it’s password protected. I’m not comfortable with that. Luckily, you can use Norton Secure VPN to help keep your information more private.
It begins protecting your connection the moment you turn it on and can even let you access local content you may not be able to access in other countries. When you use Norton Secure VPN, you can rest easy knowing it’s protecting the info you send and receive when you use public WiFi.
