I learned something new and pretty cool today, that is worth sharing with everyone. Apparently there is a way to make your iPhone more secure from malware, spam, adware, spyware, and tracking cookies for free. First, go to the app store and download the FREE apps called “Phone Guardian” and “F-Secure Freedome”. Open the apps and turn them on. In your phone “settings” app do a search for VPN: once found make sure they are on as shown in the picture below. If they are on, exit all apps. A small [VPN] box at the top of your device on the left side near your signal strength will appear. That is all you have to do. Your phone is now encrypted and on a secure virtual private network. Combined, the apps stopped 587 tracking attempts, protected 32.6MB of internet traffic, and blocked one harmful test website to my phone. **Update** I just found out F-Secure Freedome is a paid service. Still a quality app and service if you have the money.
