Why do I need VPN4ALL to retrieve my email from a hotel, airport or hotspot?

Hotel and airport networks are public networks. Your personal information can be retrieved by other parties when the data travel across the open public network. With VPN4ALL, your personal information is encrypted so no one can decipher it even if they are able to retrieve it.

Most free WiFi/HotSpots are created by hackers and cyber criminals with the sole intention of stealing the data from people that use these contaminated and open hotspots. Keep in mind that a hotspot that is hacked, can compromise ALL communications from all users linked to it e.g. links to online banking, mail services, theft of card numbers used for online shopping …etc. For this reason it is always recommended to protect yourself with VPN4ALL. With VPN4ALL, from the moment you connect to the Internet via our VPN service from any WiFi/HotSpot, all your traffic passing through the hotspot is encrypted, so although you pass through the hotspot, no one can access or steal your data. You can enjoy completely secure Internet access from anywhere! With VPN4ALL, connect with confidence.
