Mobile app of the day: F-Secure Freedome VPN

F-Secure Freedome is a comprehensive security app designed to give you online anonymity by combining connection, tracking, browsing and malware protection in a cloud-based app. Even F-Secure itself doesn't collect personal information – or require registration.

Freedome VPN boasts encryption that protects your data when you are using public Wi-Fi, and it also blocks web and in-app tracking so that advertisers don't know what you are doing (preventing them from targeting adverts at you).

Further features stop a website's ability to know where in the world you are – this can help the user access information that might not be allowed if their location was known, and can also protect you from price inflation that's dependent on where you are. There's also browsing protection that can help protect against identity theft, stealing bank account logins, and so on.

Interestingly, this app is appearing on smartphones first, with Windows and Mac versions to follow later. The free trial period is quite short at just a week, and thereafter you can opt for either a monthly or yearly subscription.
