This phone app costs $19.99 per year and could save you a lot of hassle and angst. Available for download on Apple - Avast Secure VPN. You can use one purchase for up to 5 devices tied to your Apple id.
It is also available for Android - Avast SecureLine VPN
What it does: When you are in a public WiFi area, it provides you a secure private VPN connection to the internet.
Why you should consider this app: This past week, UCG received several malware and phishing emails from clients. Our security apps caught them, but when we let the client know... both said they were at a public WiFi spot and had to have been hacked.
Bottom Line: This is a reasonably inexpensive way to protect your mobile phone, laptop, pc, server AND other people you communicate with. Highly recommended.
