Stream Securely on Public Wi-Fi and Unsecured Hotspots

Streaming the NFL draft while using the public Wi-Fi at the grocery store or mall is a good way to save mobile data, but it puts your personal data at risk. Unsecured Wi-Fi networks can give cybersnoops an opportunity to eavesdrop on your connection and steal your personal information.

CyberGhost blocks their access with strong encryption, keeping your passwords, credit card numbers, and other private data secure. As an added protection, you can enable our app’s kill switch to prevent data leaks in case the VPN connection drops unexpectedly.
