    Do you who know more about this think it's worth it?

    It's a VPN service, which is what's usually used to secure yourself when using open WiFi. I use a VPN pretty much all the time, but that's really because I'm in China, but also keeps me secure on open WiFi as well. For me having a VPN is definitely worth it.

    Do you spend a lot of time on public wifi ?
    Are you sending NSA style files and such?

    Do you have a couple dollars to burn?

    Ask yourself this: have you ever connected to unsecure networks before? ;-)

    For me its not worth the cost and reduced bandwidth/speed for my needs.

    Have you used open wifi before and have accessed your websites in that way? Have any issues? Then no, i think this is not worth the money.

    Of course Its your money and your comfort level.

    this is my own opinion and as always, YMMV.

    I wouldn't... Check out Adguard pro from the play store, it works with any browser as a VPN connection

    Thank you. Never had any issues at all. Well, that I know of. Sounds like most of you DON'T use a secure wifi app. I won't either. Ty
