FREEDOME VPN increases your security and privacy protection by routing your network traffic through F-Secure’s servers.
When you use FREEDOME, it establishes a VPN connection between your device and F-Secure’s servers. This means that, instead of using a direct connection between your device and the internet, all data traffic is routed through those servers. This approach has several benefits:
- Your data traffic is encrypted. FREEDOME uses strong encryption for all communications between your device and the F-Secure servers. This means that identity thieves and other hackers cannot steal your personal information by intercepting your data traffic, even when you use an open WiFi connection.
- Your network communication goes through the IP address of the F-Secure server that you are connected to. In this way, for example the web site you browse can only see the IP address of the F-Secure server and not the IP address of your own device.
- With FREEDOME, you may be able to access geo-restricted content. As the only IP address that web sites and services see is the one for the F-Secure server, you may be able access content that is only available in your home country even when you are travelling abroad. However, some services have blocked the use of VPN. You might be able to use these services while using a different location on FREEDOME, but we cannot guarantee this.
- Browsing protection in FREEDOME makes sure that while you browse the web, the sites you go to are safe. Browsing protection does this by blocking web sites that contain suspicious and harmful content or steal your personal information, including credit card numbers, user account information, and passwords.
