Kaspersky Secure Connection cannot be installed in Belarus, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Iran, the UAE, China, and Hong Kong due to legal limitations on the use of Virtual Private Network (VPN).

When you connect to public wi-fi networks (for example, in a restaurant), your data is transferred unencrypted. This means that your logins, passwords, messages, and other sensitive information can be accessed by malefactors. Email addresses can be used for spam mailings and the contents of your social network page may be changed.

To intercept data, a hacker only needs to be within the range of the wireless network (unlike situations with cable networks when a physical connection is required).

If you use a home wi-fi network, check if name of the network is unique and your password is strong enough.

If you have a common network name (such as "Home" or "ASUS") and a simple password, criminals can easily get full access to your computer and personal data. In least dangerous cases, they may get to use your Internet traffic or disable your router at any moment.

To protect your Wi-Fi network, click Enable protection in the notification from Kaspersky Securе Connection.
