But as it stands, this right is being threatened to be taken away from consumers throughout the country. With the recent nullification of the US Internet Privacy Regulation, your personal data and browsing history may be shared and sold by your internet service provider (ISP) to third parties even without your consent. So how are you able to protect yourself against this? US Mobile presents the answer by offering free Virtual Private Network (VPN) service for customers.
Yesterday, the wireless carrier announced that they were partnering with leading VPN service provider, Windscribe, to help their customers protect their online privacy. According to US Mobile founder and CEO Ahmed Khattak, "We believe your data is YOURS and that sharing it, or not, should be YOUR choice. The right to privacy is one of the most inspiring things about this great country and for our mobile customers we are the first line of defense, which is why we're doing what we can for current and future US Mobile customers by offering them a free VPN service."
Khattak has also sent out a challenge for other carriers in the country to "keep their customers best interest in mind and protect their private browsing data and other online activity."
So What is a VPN?
By offering a free VPN service, US Mobile protects their users with a safe and encrypted connection over the internet. Whenever a user adds a VPN to a device, the entire online experience becomes anonymous. This includes web browsing, sending and receiving private emails/messages, and prohibiting exposure of IP address and location. And since these are things that may compromise a user's personal security, a VPN can be the best help they can get (for now).
Partnering with Windscribe's VPN service makes a lot of sense since it is compatible with smartphones, tablets, and computers. The VPN service also comes with a built-in adblocker and firewall.
With yesterday's announcement, US Mobile customers can enjoy 100GB free bandwidth per month when they sign up to the VPN service offered by Windscribe. To learn more about this, visit US Mobile's website.
