Your laptop is your eternal sidekick--and you’re always asking for the Wi-Fi password at the coffee shop, gym, nail salon or client’s office.
But with all of the cyber security issues that make the news each week, it seems risky to pay bills or send sensitive emails when you’re on public networks.
Now you can protect your privacy with iCloak ($45), a USB stick that allows you to browse the Internet without being spied on.
It’s simple: Once you plug the USB stick into your computer, it’ll reboot it using the device’s own operating system (which takes less than a minute). Then iCloak allows you to browse anonymously by hiding your IP address, protecting you from hackers, viruses, advertisers’ prying eyes, government surveillance and other pesky lurkers.
Hey, a little peace of mind can go a long way.
