F-Secure Freedome review: VPN and security for mobile devices

Jon L. Jacobi | April 28, 2014
With the mobile, connect-to-any-Wi-Fi-you-can-find lifestyle comes a certain amount of risk. It's not a simple deal, but unscrupulous types can hack unencrypted communications between your mobile device and Wi-Fi hotspot or routers. That's where F-Secure's Freedome--a combination of VPN (Virtual Private Network) service and malware protection for your iOS or Android device--steps in.

If you're worried about secure communications, want to hide your actual IP address, or need to spoof your location, Freedome can do it. It's also very affordable: $30 a year, or $5 a month. The iOS version isn't quite as simple to turn on and off as Hotspot Shield or TunnelBear — or even the Android version of Freedome — but that makes it less vulnerable to being disabled by another app or malware, should that be an actual concern.
