Sprint offers protection from hackers with Secure Wi-Fi app

Monday 30 April 2018 | 08:35 CET | News
Sprint launched Sprint Secure Wi-Fi, an application for Sprint-subscribed smartphones and tablets that defends mobile users using unprotected public Wi-Fi by encrypting all data traffic as it goes between the device and the internet. Sprint Secure Wi-Fi works within a Sprint-subscribed iOS or Android device as a "Smart VPN." Once enabled, it automatically turns on when a user joins an unsecure Wi-Fi network and automatically turns off when they return to the mobile network or lose that Wi-Fi signal.
