When you are connected to the world from everywhere and every time; then you’re also open to all the threats from all over the world. Not that someone is coming to shoot you, but I’m talking about the internet. When you’re connected to the internet, your precious data is like an open book to the hackers which anyone can come and read. Though everything is secured with powerful encryption such as your Gmail account, but there are always loopholes and when you’re connected to a public Wi-Fi, then the risk is as high as living in a den of lions that are always ready to attack you. That’s why it’s always said to avoid using public Wi-Fi networks, though you don’t have a choice in case you’re studying in a college or working in a company. An alternative is to find a personal cabin in this public space. But where and how to find it is the real question.


I am talking about Avast! Secureline VPN, an iOS app that has been developed by the world’s most trusted Anti-virus Company AVAST software. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 5.0 or any later version of the OS. The app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.

What this VPN app does is that it provides you a “Secure tunnel” that protects all your browsing activities from being trapped by someone else. You can imagine it as a protective shell that bounds each bit of data you exchange over the internet. So when a hacker tries to infiltrate, the encryption doesn’t allow him to do so and you can even make highly confidential transactions such as online banking, money transaction, etc.

But the app is not just about providing you a encrypted data tunnel, but there is another important task at its hands. When you visit a country whose censorship rules are quite strict, then you might find most of the popular websites blocked including Facebook, YouTube, etc and you have to live with it. However, when you’re using this app, you can access almost all the websites anywhere in the world. This is possible because the servers of this app are located in several different locations such as US, UK, Prague, etc. So even when you’re in a country where everything is blocked, you can still enjoy the freedom of United States or Prague as they almost have no restrictions.


The app is available for free in the App Store but works on subscription packages. There is a 7-day free trial version available and after that you can continue using the app for just $2.99/month or $19.99/year. The packages are economical and with the brand name of AVAST, you can trust the security for sure. Availability of different servers gives you more freedom than ever over internet browsing. So this is a must have app for everyone!

Pros: browse any content anywhere with servers located in different locations; highly secured; free 7 day trial.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
