Here's how I'm protecting myself online and around the world.
Technology doesn't come naturally to me (remember I'm still the girl who needs paper maps!) so for years the only thing I cared about when it came to Wi-Fi was that I could find it. I never gave a second thought to online security. I just cared that I could get online! Besides, who would ever care about hacking little 'ol me, with a hard drive full of pet photos and a credit card that's always jammed with airline tickets?
What could possibly go wrong?
Trying to find Wi-Fi all around the world
Keeping Agness The PC (and her friends) safe
Using public networks versus VPNs
Given the hints of techno-phobia that flutter through my head, I needed something that was utterly idiot proof and that wouldn't cause me more frustration than it prevented. I would never have the patience for anything that would slow down my devices or drain their power. I had the chance to test out F-Secure's Freedome on my devices (including Agness!) and I'm happy to report that it delivered exactly as promised, with no annoyances or frustrations. And it gave me one more bonus - F Secure's Freedome rolls security into your VPN, including anti-virus detection that scans for spyware and malware.
