When you make Internet purchases over insecure Wi-Fi networks, your passwords and other confidential data are transmitted in non-encrypted text. Hackers can intercept your confidential data such as your bank card number and obtain access to your money.
When you connect to a Wi-Fi network, Kaspersky Secure Connection checks the security of the network. If the Wi-Fi network is insecure, Kaspersky Secure Connection prompts you to enable a secure connection via a specially allocated server located in the country you specify. When a secure connection is enabled, data from a website is first received by the allocated server. Kaspersky Secure Connection then sends the data to your device over an encrypted secure connection.Image – Kaspersky Secure Connection / Courtesy – Mobile News Mag
