Introducing our new VPN feature: SurfEasy Wi-Fi Security on Android!

Here at SurfEasy, we’re always striving to improve the service that we offer to our customers. We listen to your feedback and we read your reviews, and these help us to focus our efforts towards what our users really want.

With that in mind, we’re super happy to introduce our new feature on Android: SurfEasy Wi-Fi Security!

Many of us don’t stop to consider just how many separate wi-fi connections we connect to every day. Even if you never take your phone or tablet out of your bag, it will connect to free wi-fi hotspots and to networks that you’ve used before—for instance, the one in your favourite cafe, or at school or university.

These connections, especially free wi-fi hotspots are often unsecure, meaning that even without your device leaving your pocket, you data can be at risk.

Our new feature is designed to stop that from happening.

SurfEasy Wi-Fi Security protects you on unsecure Wi-Fi connections. This includes Wi-Fi network connections at your local coffee shop, the public library Wi-Fi or anything with a weak security encryption.

It works hard to identify all such Wi-Fi network connections, and lets you know when your data may be at risk—even if your VPN is turned off!

SurfEasy Wi-Fi Security can also, with your permission, automatically protect you on all such unsecure Wi-Fi networks without you having to worry about it. You can easily enable or change this behavior in the settings menu of the latest SurfEasy VPN version on your Android device.

We believe that you should be able to go about your daily business without worrying about your data. This feature means that you can stop in for a caramel latte, pick up some books from the library and grab lunch at your local cafe without ever worrying about your data.You can carry on with your day; we’ll keep protecting you on your device.

Thanks for helping test and make SurfEasy Wi-Fi Security feature a reality. We’ll be rolling this feature out for the desktop VPN soon, so stay tuned for that release!

If you’re not a current SurfEasy user but you want to get yourself protected, visit today. You’ll get 500MB per month to try our service, and you can get unlimited protection on up to 5 devices for just $4.99 per month.
