Imagine exploring around in the awe-inspiring Roman Colosseum, drinking up its ancient history while someone sneaks your wallet out of your pocket. Or standing atop the Eiffel Tower, taking in the grandest view in the world as someone silently swipes your passport and starts running around Paris under your name.

Avast SecureMe for iPhone

Your iPhone data may require a court order for the FBI to look into the contents, but if you log onto an unsecure Wi-Fi hotspot without protection, any old snoop can eavesdrop on what you’re doing.
