Why Do You Need a VPN for iPhone & iPad
A lot of people wonder Do I need VPN on my iPhone? As we all know, thanks to the closed ecosystem, users of iOS can obtain higher security and privacy protection than other operating systems. However, in Apple products still exist security vulnerabilities, and it canbe said that no system can completely avoid threats from the network.
Use Sonics VPN to encrypt the connection between your iOS device and any network, adding an extra layer of security to your daily web surfing on iPhone and iPad.
Stay Safe on Public Wifi
The public Wifi hotspots in bookstores, cafe, hotels and other places indeed provide convenience for those people who need to connect to the Internet out of their home, but there are hidden risks in the connected public networks, hackers may be staying on the same Wifi network as you. In this case, every message you send through Wifi, including emails, credit card information, etc., can be intercepted by hackers. To make matters worse, hackers may use unprotected Wifi to spread malicious software on your computer and mobile devices, causing more serious private data leakage. Get Sonics VPN on your iPhone to encrypt all traffic and data over the public Wifi, and enjoy secure & fast online web surfing over the Wifi hotspots anytime and anywhere.
Stop ISP From Spying
Do you think no one could know what you do on the Internet as long as you turn on the automatic clearing of browsing history? No, actually, your ISP (internet service provider) can still know exactly what websites you browse everyday on the Internet, what videos you watch, and what files you download. Sonics VPN also works as a IP changer to modify your IP address, so that you can really hide your network identity, and protect yourself from spying eyes of ISP.
Have you suffered from kinds of annoying pop-up ads flooding the web pages? This is because websites and apps may collect your personal data, such as your name / gender / age / contacts / addresses / device types and etc. for displaying corresponding advertisements to you. Browsing the web with Sonics VPN can effectively reduce and block the display of pop-up ads. In addition, filtering ads also brings faster web page loading, allowing you to enjoy a clean and smooth internet surfing experience.
