Developed by Symantec Incorporation, Norton WiFi Privacy offers its users anonymity and online privacy by creating a private network from a public Internet connection, including unsecured public WiFi networks. It does not work like other well-known VPNs, such as NordVPN or ExpressVPN, but Norton WiFi Privacy encrypts your data. It encrypts sensitive data, like passwords and credit card numbers, before converting them into an unreadable, untraceable form until it gets to its final destination. The Norton WiFi Privacy application comes loaded with many excellent security features that allow you to access your favorite online content from anywhere in the world, even in restricted areas. With Norton WiFi Privacy, your internet traffic and online activities are routed through a secure and encrypted tunnel to the VPN service's server before getting to the wide and wild Internet. This effectively prevents anyone on your local network from monitoring your connection and protects your internet data and activities from Cybercriminals.
Norton WiFi Privacy offers 25 server locations with at least two different servers in each location. These geographically diverse collections of server locations are located in countries across the globe, including Africa, Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, and the South Pacific. This gives its users the benefit of switching between multiple servers from different locations, as they are sure to find at least one server on the same continent regardless of their location. By default, Norton WiFi Privacy will choose the VPN server that is closest to your current location. This is because of the major impact your proximity to the server location can have on the efficiency of any VPN service provider, as a closer server usually ensures a better experience. However, for users who would like to make it appear as if their Web traffic is coming from somewhere else, the program allows you to select from a list manually, and the app will connect instantly. Norton WiFi Privacy works perfectly with almost all the popular protocols available including PPTP, L2TP, SSTP, OpenVPN, and IPsec. One of the distinctive features of Norton WiFi Privacy application is its ability to start the VPN automatically whenever your phone connects to an unsecured Wi-Fi network. However, if you are not a fan of automation, and you hate the idea of your system apps doing things without your consent, the program gives you the chance to toggle this option off and go for the option that allows you to receive warnings about the network's lack of security instead.
Norton WiFi Privacy is compatible with all Windows operating systems, Android, Mac OS, and Linux, so it is compatible with all your mobile devices and PCs.
