)-- Private WiFi is inviting everyone to be among the first users of its WiFi Encryption software. They have developed a software that can secure your personal information by encrypting the data which flows into and out of your computer, making you invisible to hackers. It installs in just minutes, runs invisibly in the background, and protects you whenever and wherever you are connected to a WiFi hotspot.
Private WiFi uses the same complex technology and proven encryption used by important corporations and government agencies. All data going into and out of your computer becomes encrypted. Their super fast servers in multiple locations around the world decrypt your communications and sends them to the correct destination. In addition, Private WiFi users also benefit from anonymous IP addresses and location masking to add to their privacy.Private WiFi

About Wireless Security Risks
WiFi usage has been thriving in the recent period due to its convenience and ease of use. A person can log in to the Internet from the airport, the library, a coffee house or any other public place offering WiFi. However, not many people are aware of the security risks typically associated with using wireless access.
Wireless networks use radio waves instead of cable to connect computers to one another. When someone connects to a WiFi, they open up their PC, as well as the personal information that is stored on it, to a new kind of hacker called a sniffer. Sniffing has become more common recently due to the wide variety of easy-to-use hacking tools. Sniffers don't need physical access to your computer, they just have to be in the same network as you. Once in, they have access to all kinds of personal information, such as passwords, social security numbers, credit card numbers, drivers licenses and any other data that other network users have on their computer.
