As a Freedome brand ambassador, I’m thrilled to be partnering with them to bring you the first in a series of posts about how to keep yourself safer online.
So I just flew in from San Diego and boy, are my arms tired. (Feel free to roll your eyes at my corny joke!) But seriously, I arrived at the airport at 5 am and did not get to my own house until after 10 pm. That’s a looooong day of travel! And it would have been pretty unproductive if it wasn’t for Freedome.
You see, I used to have a phobia about using my laptop at airports. I was aware of the ability of hackers to intercept any information you share over public WiFi so I generally just avoided using public WiFi at all. But as I began traveling more and more, that got kind of inconvenient. I love using my layover time to get posts done or getting bumped from my flight (hello free travel!!) and hunkering down in the nearest coffee shop to get work done. But if I can’t use public WiFi, that isn’t an option.
So that leaves me with a few options. I can just not use WiFi while traveling, but that cuts down on what I can get done. I can purchase a mobile plan that includes a mobile hotspot, but that adds a hefty extra expense that I’d rather not incur. Or I can use Freedome which protects my information while on public WiFi. Guess which one I chose?
Freedome is a VPN app that protects my devices when I am using any WiFi network. Once it is installed, I don’t even have to think about it, it just does it’s thing automatically -which is huge when you’re stressed and running between terminals trying to pull up your boarding pass!!
You can learn more about what Freedome does to protect you on public WiFi on their site. And it has other great features as well!! (Tune in next week when I’ll be highlighting another.)
In the meantime, you can try out Freedome yourself with a free three month trial. Use this code and then rest assured that you are safe while surfing: cttpc3
