If you’re like most work at home parents, finding a way to entertain your children and still get work done can be a daunting task at times. When deadlines are looming, I take my youngest to a certain nearby family-friendly fast food joint that has free Wi-Fi. I am always leery of the work I do there and worry about how safe my data really is and for good reason frankly.
Every time you utilize public Wi-Fi, you are living in a virtual aquarium. Unaware of who is watching you and what they can see, let alone steal. As long as you are using public Wi-Fi, you are an easy catch for hackers and trackers.
It isn’t just hackers you should be worried about either…..
Imagine every time you surf online, tiny digital spies snooping around every corner. What sites you visit most, what online purchases you make, chats and emails with friends and families….odds are, you’re being tracked.
Malware, viruses, phishing, hackers and trackers; oh my!
So what is a helpless person to do? For starters, you need to have Freedome VPN on ALL your apple or android mobile devices. For those who stick around to the end of this post, I’ll show you how you can get it for FREE! *Now available on Kindle Fire as well as Mac & PC!

Now for some real-time user experiences:
I wanted to share with you my personal experience with Freedome VPN, so I’ve posted some current screenshots of just how effective it really is. The proof is in the pudding right? Or in this case the screenshots…..
I put Freedome on my PC desktop, my kids PC desktop and my iPad. I admit it, I was skeptical at first. I keep our devices locked down pretty tight and like to consider myself more technically aware the average online user. That being said, when I saw the tracking numbers increasing daily on not one, but ALL three devices, I was floored! Each had varied results that I will share with you here:

If you’re worried that installing Freedome VPN will be too complicated, no need to fret. Whether it’s for your PC or device it’s truly as easy as following these steps:
But why take my word for it? I asked my fellow blogger buddies who are on this same campaign with me, to share their experiences as well. That way you can see a variety of users experiencing a variety of results.
Nicole Pyles of World of My Imagination was pretty shocked when she saw how LARGE the number of tracking attempts were on her windows tablet. Wowzers!

WARNING! The following video will either make you laugh or cry…….
A big thanks to the good folks at F-Secure Freedome VPN for sponsoring this post. I learned a lot about security and privacy issues. As always you can expect an honest review from me.
