Just a few weeks back, Info Security Products Guide Global Excellence Awards presented their 2018 award winners. We are humbled to have received two golds in the Product or Service Excellence of the Year — Security Information and Website & Web Application Security for McAfee Safe Connect.
McAfee Safe Connect uses a VPN to help users create secure online connections while using the Internet. Doing so helps our customers minimize their individual security risks and helps keep their data private – especially when connecting to a public or open Wi-Fi network. Unlike home Wi-Fi, many public Wi-Fi networks (commonly offered at cafés, airports and hotels) aren’t password-protected and don’t encrypt the user data being transmitted through. Therefore, when you connect to a hotspot, your online activities from your social media activity to your online purchase history and even your bank account credentials may be wide open to hackers. With McAfee Safe Connect, you can rest assured that your information and online activities are encrypted.
McAfee has a proven record of providing security for consumers in the digital age. To address growing concerns over Wi-Fi security, we decided to create a world-class VPN that would keep users’ personal information secure from online threats and unsecured networks. Just take a look at what happened in October and you may think twice about not using a VPN when connecting online: https://securingtomorrow.mcafee.com/consumer/consumer-threat-notices/krack-threatens-wi-fi
McAfee Safe Connect has over 1 million downloads across Google Play and the App Store with an impressive 4.3-star rating. It is available in over 20 languages to users worldwide.
Tech behemoth Samsung also chose McAfee Safe Connect VPN SDK for their Galaxy Note 8 – Secure Wi-Fi feature and expanded collaboration with its newly announced Galaxy S9 Smartphones.
