Public Wi-Fi networks may be under-protected, for example, if a Wi-Fi network uses a vulnerable encryption protocol or a popular Wi-Fi network name (SSID). When you make Internet purchases over insecure Wi-Fi networks, your passwords and other confidential data may be transmitted in non-encrypted text. Hackers can intercept your confidential data, find out your bank card number, and obtain access to your money. You can use Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection to secure your Internet connection.
When you connect to the Internet, Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection checks your connection. If your connection is insecure, Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection prompts you to enable a secure connection via a specially allocated server located in the country you specify. When a secure connection is enabled, data from a website is first received by the allocated server. Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection then sends the data to your device over an encrypted communication channel.
Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection provides the following advantages:
Hackers will not be able to intercept your bank card number on a website when you make online payments, book hotel rooms, or rent cars.
No one will be able to determine the IP address of your device or your location.
No one will be able to intercept and read your private correspondence on social networks, chats, and email websites.
Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection can be used for any types of network connections, such as a local Internet connection or USB modem connection.
By default, Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection does not prompt you to enable a secure connection if the HTTPS protocol is used to connect to a website.
Changing your virtual location when visiting websites of banks, payment systems, booking websites, social networks, chats, and email websites could result in the triggering of anti-fraud systems (systems intended for analyzing online financial transactions for signs of fraudulent operations).
The use of Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection may be regulated by regional legislation. You may use the application only in accordance with its purpose and without violating any regional legislation.
