You’re probably among the growing number of people who connect to public WiFi at the coffee shop, in an airport, or while you’re out shopping. No matter if it’s called “open WiFi” or “public hotspot” the risks are the same...you’re connecting to a potentially unsecured network where hackers can literally grab your information straight from the airwaves.
The media is full of stories about what can happen next. Your information can be used to log on to your email, Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn accounts. Or, perhaps it will be used to steal your identity completely. All of these possibilities are bad for you. Besides the potential for fraud or worse, loss of money, the time it can take you to recover and clean up your identity can be daunting.
A virtual private network (VPN) is your best defense for protecting you on public WiFi.
As companies, organizations, and governments are increasingly watching your digital activities, you are losing more and more control of what gets shared and what doesn’t. If someone were to steal your credentials to email, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or other personal online accounts while on public WiFi, and use them for illegal activity, your identity could be connected to it.
A virtual private network (VPN) not only encrypts your communications on public WiFi, it also anonymizes your online activities by allowing you to choose servers in various locations to do your browsing. Now you can upload and download files privately, have confidence that your VOIP calls (like Skype or Viber) remain private, and even prevent search engines from logging your search history.
avast! SecureLine for PC is an add-on of every avast! antivirus.

In the late 1980s, Czech computer technology innovators Eduard Kucera and Pavel Baudis developed a program they called “anti-virus advanced set” (AVAST). Later, they realized the serendipity of ‘avast’ being also an English-language nautical term meaning “stop!” – as they would eventually develop their vision into one of the world’s top-ranked antivirus softwares.
Just like in the beginning, we still believe that all internet users need and deserve antivirus protection – one that is dependable, fast, reasonably sized, and unobtrusive… one that scans and updates automatically, and gives only an occasional reminder that it works. As a result, our avast! Free Antivirus is a full-featured product that routinely outperforms many of our competitors’ paid products.
