Today, Steganos presents an iOS version of its proven VPN software Steganos Online Shield VPN. The new app protects iPhones and iPads from hackers and data spies by enabling iOS users to surf using an encrypted mobile connection.
“Never have there been as many attacks on mobile devices as last year. Smart phones store private photos, contacts, passwords, mails as well as chats and connect through any WiFi network. Protection from data theft is more important than ever. In order to expand mobile security to an even wider audience, we are following up the Android version of our excellent Steganos Online Shield VPN with a version for iOS devices“, says Gabriel F. Yoran, founder and general manager of Steganos Software GmbH.
Steganos recommends: Anyone who wants to safely surf in public WiFi networks is best protected using an encrypted virtual private network (VPN). Steganos Online Shield for iOS VPN can now establish such a VPN on iPhones and iPads. Once activated, the app directs the entire data traffic flow through the secure Steganos server.
Additionally, the software hides user’s identity by exchanging the IP address. This makes it impossible for hackers and spies in the same network to obtain the user’s data. Regardless of whether the user is surfing at the office, the library, a café, the airport or train station, the encrypted connection protects data traffic flow of all apps. Steganos Online Shield VPN for iOS also identifies other devices in the WiFi network; potential hackers and spies are thus blocked. This is how all WiFi networks are now made safe for iPhone and iPad users worldwide.
However, it is not only the use of unsecured WiFi hotspots that endangers digital privacy, but also the many apps that transfer unencrypted data traffic. This also holds the door wide open for hackers to the most sensitive data. Steganos Online Shield VPN for iOS also closes this glaring security hole via secure SSL/TLS encryption, regardless of whether the user is connected through a WiFi or wireless network (3G, 4G/ LTE, Edge, GPRS, etc.).
Steganos Online Shield VPN for iOS is free of advertisements and free of charge for up to 500 MB of data monthly. Steganos Online Shield VPN Premium allows unlimited data volume and includes protection for up to five devices (Windows, iOS, Android). Steganos Online Shield VPN Premium is available directly in iTunes as a year’s license for an introductory price of 24.99 $ or as a monthly subscription for 2.99 $.
