Freedome VPN is the newest application developed by Xoasis, a Finnish company known for its excellent antivirus and cyber security solutions.
Alarmed by the recent scandals related to mass surveillance programs and data for sale practiced by large corporations, the company decided to create an application whose premise is to turn the right of privacy to Internet users.
Basically, the program brings together four different features that, combined, allow you to browse the web and share information with your friends in a way much more secure, completely shielded against any hackers prying eyes. It acts as a VPN client, online tracking blocker, anti virus and malicious sites detector (like phishing attempts and fake login pages).
One of the philosophies within the Freedome VPN is to transform a complex technology into something easy to be understood by ordinary users – and it was through this concept that the company developed the Freedome. The interface of application is focused on only one big button by which you can turn on and off all the instant way protection modules. The modules in question are the following:
Tracking protection: causes the Freedome to hide your IP address and block tracking cookies that are usually offered for all sites that you visit. That way, any page or application can collect information about you;
Browser protection: automatically blocks the sites that offer risk to your digital life, such as pages with phishing and fake forms able to steal sensitive data;
Virus protection: protects your device against malware that eventually try to invade your gadget to damage it or get hold of personal information;
Protecting connection: creates a virtual private network (VPN) through the Freedome VPN Cloud server, encrypting all data traffic in and out of your device.
You can also drag the on/off button down and turn on/off each of the four modules individually, if you prefer.
Around the world
But it doesn’t stop there: the Freedome VPN also allows you to “pretend” that is located in another country, so you can access restricted content to a certain region. Currently, the application allows you to use IP-addresses of the United States (Northern Virginia), Germany (Sachsen), Finland (Espoo), United Kingdom (London) and Sweden (Stockholm).
It is worth noting that the program also offers a monitor that displays real-time traffic data protected (in MBs), quantity of viruses and malicious websites blocked and total trace attempts that were avoided. This information is located on the lower main screen of Freedome, but you can view them with more details by sliding the on/off button upwards.
Above you gave a complete description about the Freedome VPN and its functionalities, know now what we think of The Freedome brand is synonymous with quality: just check the periodic tests of AV Comparatives to realize that any anti-virus software developed by the company are always on top of the best ranking. Following the strict Finnish legislation in relation to the privacy of Internet users, the company hit once again by launching the Freedome, which can already be considered a critical application for those who want to stay safe while using your mobile device.
It is obvious that the program presents some points that need improving – the IP masking, for example, allows you to “pretend” to be present in only five countries, a relatively low number if we analyze other VPN clients available on the market. However, the very simple application interface and its powerful protection against online tracking outweigh this slight handicap.
The company’s philosophy was followed to the letter: it’s absurdly easy to operate the Freedome. Roughly, just open the application and touch a button. You will only do something also if you want to control the activity of the modules individually or use secondary resources (how to change the region of your IP address). The real-time monitor is a great way to figure out how we are assaulted and watched the whole time on the internet; in less than five minutes and 9 MB of navigation, the utility has blocked nine attempts.
The monthly fee of Freedome can even scare some people, but it’s always good to remember the words of Christian Fredrikson, CEO of Freedome VPN . For the Finnish, “in free apps, you are the product and you’re being sold”. The Executive refers to software made available as a free download, but you make money with the use of advertising or marketing data from its users to partner companies.
Anyway, it’s worth downloading the software and its features, if only to test it during the seven free days – just after trying everything he has to offer you will be able to decide if it is worth investing your money or not.
