Sprint Secure Wi-Fi to Provide Business and Consumer Wireless Customers with Automatic Data Encryption
Sprint (NYSE: S) today announced the launch of Sprint Secure Wi-Fi, an easy-to-use application for Sprint-subscribed smartphones and tablets. Sprint Secure Wi-Fi seamlessly protects mobile users using unprotected public Wi-Fi by encrypting all data traffic as it goes between the device and the internet.
Every day, millions of mobile device users connect to unsecure public Wi-Fi – hotels, coffee shops, restaurants, etc. – making them vulnerable to malicious users and content. Something as simple as checking the weather or skimming through social media can potentially put sensitive data and credentials at risk. Traffic on public Wi-Fi connections is often unencrypted, leaving the user’s phone susceptible to attack.
