You’ve probably heard by now that, in December of 2017, the FCC voted to repeal the net neutrality laws put in place in 2015. What does that mean to you? Net neutrality classified the internet as a utility that could be regulated, and the primary regulation prevented Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in the US from giving preference to certain websites and services while hindering or blocking others.

Data Privacy Day will be celebrated across the globe on Sunday. This is a great time to emphasize the role our channel partners and business customers play in ensuring that employees can work safely, securely and privately online.
Ten years ago, the first Data Privacy Day was held in the US and Canada on January 28. Since then, the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) has commemorated it every year with online privacy awareness efforts aimed at both consumers and businesses. With the recent loss of net neutrality in the United States, this year’s Data Privacy Day takes on greater significance.
Avast SecureLine VPN keeps you safe when connected to an unsecured Wi-Fi
Unsecured networks can expose you to a hacker who can easily read your messages, steal your logins, passwords, and credit card details.
The danger is that you never know when it could happen, or where, so having a way to secure your device when connected to an unsecured Wi-Fi hotspot is the best protection.
How to avoid the dangers of open Wi-Fi
To avoid the potential of a snoop stealing your private information, you basically have two choices: Stop using unsecured Wi-Fi hotspots or make sure you always have a secure connection by using a VPN (virtual private network), like Avast SecureLine VPN.
A VPN sounds extremely techie, and it is, under the hood. Avast mobile security developers created SecureLine to give you a secure and reliable private connection for your data between computer networks over the Internet. Your outgoing and incoming data is encrypted and it travels in its own private “tunnel” and is decrypted at the other end.
When you use Avast SecureLine VPN, everything you do is anonymous. We don’t keep logs of your online activity, and thanks to SecureLine, no one else will either.
