More Info about avast! SecureLine and SecureLine ProHow avast! SecureLine works?
Unsecured Wi-Fi Internet communications, regardless how good your security software, can be exploited for data theft. While communicating with any website/server, your data transmits through a large number of devices. Although many of these devices are secure, it can occur that a hacker gains access to some device and monitors data being transmitted. avast! SecureLine is a Virtual Private Network (VPN), which creates a virtual encryption ‘tunnel’ to secure your Internet communications. Data is then decoded at the VPN server, using advanced encryption protocols to significantly decrease your risk.
