Having a background in the financial industry, I have seen identity theft over and over again. It is not pretty, and sometimes it can take months, if not years, to get everything back to they way it should be. That’s why I am so passionate about protecting your information, especially when you are using things like WiFi Hot spots!
Did you know that when you use an unsecured network, even though the website is secure your information can still get stolen? Scary, isn’t it?! I’ve been traveling a lot more lately, and it has made me more aware of just how often I use WiFi connections. When I am on the road, I access my bank accounts, my emails, and my medical records. That’s all information I don’t want to be in someone else’s hands. I mean I joke that if someone stole my identity the joke would be on them, and it would, but I don’t want to have to go through all the stress of figuring out how my stuff got stolen.
I just recently learned that Norton has a product that can make you breath a little bit easier when it comes to using WiFi hot spots. The Norton Hotspot Privacy protection plan can truly allow you to use the Internet securely when you are in a public place.
With this service, you can choose to use it per day, or get a monthly subscription. Since my travel is sporadic, I really love the daily option because it’s only $2.99 per day. Plus, I can protect up to 5 devices so my phone, laptop, and my tablet are all protected.
Norton Hotspot protection also works with Windows® 7 / XP / XP Pro / Vista / 8 / 8 Pro / Mac OS X® 10.5 / 10.6 / 10.7 / 10.8 / 10.9 / iOS 4.3 or later . There’s a pretty good chance that your devices will be able to be protected by this program.
Trust me you may think it’s worth taking a chance to not worry about mobile security when you are using a WiFi Hot Spot, but I can tell you from the ruined credit reports, strained marriages, and ulcers that have come from identity theft that $2.99 a day is worth the piece of mind.
