[Note - this is a fee based service] “Norton by Symantec today released Norton Hotspot Privacy, a new service that helps protect consumers using public Wi-Fi connections. Available in the U.S. and U.K. for Mac and PC, Norton Hotspot Privacy automatically creates a private connection – or virtual private network – allowing users to control what they share online, no matter where they connect to the Internet. Two-thirds of online adults use free or unsecured Wi-Fi networks, from coffee shops to airports and public parks. But along with the convenience come risks of exposing sensitive information to cybercriminals. Norton Hotspot Privacy enables users to become ‘invisible’ on the network and also encrypts their username, password and other confidential information they may be entering online. Consumers can sign into the Norton Hotspot Privacy Web portal, download the client and the VPN will automatically configure to create a private connection.”
