Avast SecureLine VPN Proxy iOS Review

Connecting to open insecure wireless networks is a big problem for those who want to communicate securely and privately. Facebook, Email, Pokemon Go and Gmail passwords are susceptible to snooping while on non-secured Wi-Fi networks in coffee shops, restaurants, airports and everywhere else it is open.
