Editors' Review

Onavo Protect helps keep you and your data safe when you browse and share information on the Web.

What sets Onavo 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 Onavo Protect should definitely appeal. It is recommended for any user who wants to keep their data off of potentially dangerous sites.

 |  Version: Free VPN - Onavo Protect 1.2.3

Pros

Privacy and security on free wifi spots
Works in the background automatically
Warns you of malicious web sites
Protects you on free wifi networks at airports, hotels, restaurants, etc
You can also manually switch it off

Cons

Slows you down a bit obviously going through an encrypted tunnel
Had to install twice on one device to get it going

Summary

Brilliant app that allowed me to use free wifi spots around the world with confidence. Even in places like Russia and China. Warned me of 1 malicious site I wouldn't have known about otherwise.
