LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CES 2014 -- Private Communications Corporation, makers of PRIVATE WiFi, is further expanding its consumer VPN offering to allow users to protect any of their devices across all major software and mobile platforms. Given the ever-increasing mobile lifestyle for consumers and the value of a VPN service for protection while using unsecured WiFi while on the go, PRIVATE WiFi is also pleased to announce a flexible Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) offering, which allows customers to share the same "quota" across an unlimited amount of devices. This addresses the needs of people who need VPN protection only occasionally, such as when they travel.
It is easy for hackers to gain access to private data regardless of whether you are on your laptop, smart phone and other mobile device in public hotspots. A recent survey conducted by PRIVATE WiFi, in conjunction with the Identity Theft Resource Center® (ITRC), revealed that 76% of respondents believe using a free WiFi connection can lead to identity theft.
PRIVATE WiFi's VPN is a simple solution that encrypts data going into and out of all of your devices while using public WiFi, protecting consumers from hackers and identity thieves in any hotspot.
"From planes, trains and even automobiles; coffee shops, public parks and bookstores, WiFi has become ubiquitous. But, these hotspots are inherently unsafe, and cyber thieves are just waiting to steal your data and identity," said Kent Lawson, Founder and CEO of PRIVATE WiFi. "It is our mission at PRIVATE WiFi to protect hotspot users no matter what device they're using and provide simplicity in both budgeting and use."
PRIVATE WiFi installs in minutes and immediately connects to a secure server, so you are safe and secure in no time. The clean and concise interface makes it easy for users to navigate from the initial registration steps to viewing usage history to turning encryption on or off.
Available immediately, PRIVATE WiFi's personal VPN now offers a FREE 10 day trial for laptops, smart phones and tablets. The monthly subscription plan starts at $9.99/month for protection on up to 3 devices and $12.99/month on up to 5 devices. Subscriptions are also available on an annual basis. Private WiFi's multi device subscription plan is available on the company's web site at www.privatewifi.com.
