WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., April 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- US Mobile, a mission-driven wireless carrier started by serial telecom entrepreneur (and immigrant) Ahmed Khattak, announced entering a partnership with Windscribe, a leading VPN service provider, to protect customer's privacy online. The interest of online privacy has spiked as the US Internet Privacy Regulation was repealed, allowing Internet Service Providers to share and even sell customers' personal data, without consent.
"We believe your data is YOURS and that sharing it, or not, should be YOUR choice. The right to privacy is one of the most inspiring things about this great country and for our mobile customers we are the first line of defense, which is why we're doing what we can for current and future US Mobile customers by offering them a free VPN service," says Ahmed Khattak, CEO and Founder of US Mobile. Khattak continues "We are challenging the industry to keep their customers best interest in mind and protect their private browsing data and other online activity."
Windscribe was a natural choice to partner with and Yegor Saks, Founder of Windscribe, says: "While the industry is gearing up to turn your private browsing history into a revenue stream, we're very excited to go against the grain and collaborate with US Mobile to bring enhanced privacy to all their customers. We feel this goes above and beyond simply claiming not to sell data, as deploying tools like Windscribe will hide your activity even from the carrier itself, which truly demonstrates US Mobile's commitment to protecting their customer's privacy."
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a technology which creates a safe and encrypted connection over the internet. By adding a VPN to a device, it will make web browsing anonymous, keep emails and messages private and prohibit IP address and location to be exposed, compromising personal security. Winscribe's VPN service is compatible with phones, tablets and computers, and even has a built-in adblocker and firewall.
US Mobile's customers get 100GB free bandwidth per month when they sign up to Winscribe's VPN service, via www.usmobile.com/vpn. This is sufficient for a user who browses the internet daily and stream videos and music.
