Browse anonymously with Avira’s FREE Phantom VPN on your Android smartphones and Windows PCs
Many Android smartphone and iPhone users are already using VPN’s to surf the Internet anonymously. A VPN or virtual private network enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network, and thus benefit from the functionality, security and management policies of the private network. A VPN is created by establishing a virtual point-to-point connection through the use of dedicated connections, virtual tunnelling protocols, or traffic encryption.
While the market is filled with both free and paid VPNs, Avira has now released a free VPN service for Android smartphones and iOS devices. Avira, which markets its anti-virus software under same brand name has launched the Avira Phantom VPN, which will allow Android and Windows users a completely secure, encrypted and anonymous access to the internet even if connected through an unsecured, public WiFi hotspot.
The USP (unique selling point) of Avira Phantom VPN is that it can easily encrypt virtually all communications between an Android smartphone or Windows PC and the internet. This helps in preventing malicious actors and cyber-criminals from listening to your private conversations and/or stealing your data.
