About Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection

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.

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. If using VPN is prohibited in your region then sections of the website and interface elements for managing Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection application may be hidden or unavailable in your language.

Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection provides the following advantages:

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).
