BEIJING, Sept. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Qihoo 360 Technology Co. Ltd. ("Qihoo 360" or the "Company"), a leading Internet company globally, launched today 360 TurboVPN, the company's VPN (Virtual Private Network) solution for the users concerned about the privacy of their Internet communications.
360 TurboVPN is born to complement the protection for PC offered by 360 Total Security, by shielding the user's communications with end-to-end, bank-level encryption. This tool protects users' online privacy and anonymity, and allows them to access geo-restricted content.
One of the key characteristics of 360 TurboVPN is its simple user interface and ease of use, a common property for all products of the company. No special configuration is required to start using TurboVPN. A single click is enough to start to get protected by TurboVPN.
"With this new service we aim to extend the protection for our users beyond the limits of their devices, shielding their communications and protecting their data as it's transferred online," - states Zhou Hong Yi, CEO of Qihoo 360.
A VPN has become a necessity in the current Internet landscape, where hackers not only target the personal devices but also the information transmitted through the different networks, such as airports' or restaurants' free Wi-Fi. A VPN encrypts user's information during its transmission across Internet, preventing hackers from accessing to it.
360 TurboVPN launches endorsed after a successful Pioneer Program, where selected users have been able to experience an early version of the application during months, providing valuable feedback that has been included in this first official release.
360 TurboVPN is now available for free download from https://www.360totalsecurity.com.
