Public Wi-Fi networks may be under-protected, for example, if a Wi-Fi network uses a vulnerable encryption protocol. When you connect to a Wi-Fi network, Kaspersky Security Cloud checks the network. If the Wi-Fi network is insecure, the application prompts you to install or run Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection.

Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection provides the following advantages:

  • Safe use of payment systems and booking sites. Intruders will not be able to intercept your bank card number when you make online payments, book hotel rooms, or rent cars.
  • Protection of your secret information. No one will be able to determine your computer's IP address or your location.
  • Protection of your privacy. No one will be able to intercept and read your private correspondence on social networks.

Important: Use of Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection may be regulated by local legislation. You may use Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection only in accordance with its purpose and without violating local legislation.

If Kaspersky Security Cloud warns you that your Wi-Fi connection is unsecured

It means that you have connected to an unprotected Wi-Fi network and your logins, passwords, messages, and other sensitive information can be intercepted. We recommend not to use this network.
