Accessing public WiFi sites is always risky, and this powerful tool adds a layer of protection that can prevent a system from being hacked. It is very easy to use, and it creates a shield around any computer or tablet by forming a virtual private network. Anyone who accesses the internet from public hot-spots can benefit from this effective utility, and it only takes a few seconds to download and install.

It also allows users to access certain sites that are blocked in other countries. This is great way to watch videos, listen to music and browse the internet even when governments try to censor content. The only drawback with this feature is that browsing is very slow, and pages often do not display properly. Recent updates have also interfered with how Java works on certain sites as well, and they will hopefully release a patch that will rectify this situation soon.

Users must contend with continual pop-up ads as well, and they can get really annoying. This is especially true when browsing the web through slow connections. Some of these ads are very system intensive, and my browser has crashed numerous times as a result. I use a utility to block these pop-up ads from appearing, and it does seem to help to reduce this problem.

This utility is completely free to use and enjoy, and I do not have to fuss with annoying settings or complicated menus. A small toolbar appears on my browser, and there is an indicator light that tells me when this tool is working. Anyone who wants to safely surf the internet will enjoy this utility, and it really does live up to its advertised promises.

This is definitely a solid, stable and foolproof tool that provides a protective barrier when using public wireless internet hot-spots.
