Protecting yourself on the internet used to be a lot simpler — mostly because you weren’t always on the internet.
Now we can be online from when we wake up until when we go to sleep. We seamlessly shift from chatting to shopping to banking — rarely sticking to one device or platform for too long.
Most of us aren’t just a Mac or PC or an Android anymore — we’re all of the above.
“I, and I think most people, have a cross-platform household – I use several different devices with different operating systems on a daily basis,” F-Secure security advisor Sean Sullivan explains.
The old paradigm of just protecting your PC or your phone can leave your devices exposed to threats. And even the best security software in the world won’t protect your public Wi-Fi connection from being snooped on, possibly exposing your most private details, including passwords.
That’s why we’ve launched F-Secure total security and privacy, which combines F-Secure SAFE and F-Secure Freedome.
F-Secure SAFE is a multi-device internet security suite that protects all your devices. Freedome is a VPN offers a simple way to encrypt your communications over public Wi-Fi and change your virtual location to access geo-blocked sites and services while blocking malicious websites and online tracking.
“Buying separate products to protect iOS, Windows, Macs and whatever else isn’t just expensive, but it means you have to get used to different pieces of software designed to do the same thing,” Sean explains.
F-Secure total security and privacy is now available for a free trial here. If you’re a current SAFE customer, you can’t upgrade to total security and privacy but you should receive a discount offer for Freedome.
“Bundling protective measures into packages to run on different devices is more economical and more user friendly, both of which are good for security.”
