Verizon Launches VPN That Blocks Targeted Ads for $3.99 a Month
Verizon is launching its own VPN for Verizon customers for $3.99 a month.
The VPN, Safe Wi-Fi, hides your IP address when you’re on a public network on up to 10 devices on iOS and Android. In addition to the added security, Verizon’s VPN also blocks targeted ads. This means that while you’re using public Wi-Fi in a coffee shop, airport, or hotel, you can use your device with an extra layer of security.
Safe Wi-Fi can be accessed through Verizon’s “My Verizon” app under “Products and Devices.” The service is already available on Android and iOS devices.
Verizon is currently offering the first 30 days of Safe Wi-Fi free for new customers. The option is also much cheaper than may other VPN alternatives, which can cost more at their lowest pre-paid rates.
