Review: Onava Protect creates a series of added security layers on your phone

Protect yourself from potential threats while browsing on your iPhone.

Onava Protect - VPN Security is a powerful added layer of security for your iPhone, constantly checking for and blocking unsafe forms and Web sites to protect your device. With the iPhone becoming one of the most popular tools on the planet for surfing the Web, it has become increasingly important to have security measures in place, and Onava Protect manages to integrate well into the iOS architecture.

What sets Onava Protect apart from other security tools is that it works with your existing apps. It doesn't require a third-party browser. Instead it installs a security certificate on your device so that when you reach a site that has unsecured forms or has been tagged as potentially dangerous, you get a warning to go back or exit the page. It's a useful tool that mirrors desktop anti-virus and firewall tools without forcing you to use a different suite of tools on the device -- something few offer. The setup process is intimidating, but with a number of tutorials and walk-throughs and a clear instruction outlined up front, most people will feel comfortable installing and using this service.

If you process a lot of data on your iPhone via forms or secure log-ins in Safari, the added security of Onava Protect should definitely appeal. It is recommended for any user who wants to keep their data off of potentially dangerous sites.
