Norton WiFi Privacy Secure VPN aims to provide a one-tap way to protect your data while you're on the Internet.

Pros

Affordable annual subscription: An annual subscription to Norton's Android VPN runs $29.99 per year -- a competitive price, as other VPN services range from $30 to $80 per year.

Reach other regions: A VPN can help bypass region-specific content restrictions to access streaming media. WiFi Privacy Secure VPN has exit nodes in 14 countries: Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Spain, United Kingdom, and United States.

Networking speeds: By the way a VPN operates, you may see a hit on networking speed with the service turned on. In our informal tests on Wi-Fi and cellular networks, Norton's VPN affected download and upload rates, but media streamed fine.

Security: Norton's VPN uses the open-source OpenVPN application to create a secure link over a public network and uses Blowfish for encryption.

Personal information: Norton says it does not log any user data, including websites visited, files downloaded, or content accessed.

Handy privacy settings: You can set the VPN to automatically turn on when you attempt to connect to an unsecured network, and to block ad-tracking cookies while active.

Cons

Annual subscription only: Unlike many other VPN providers -- which offer subscriptions ranging from a few days to a year long --Norton has just an annual rate. Norton also doesn't offer a free trial version, but you can cancel your subscription within the first seven days without penalty.

Plan covers one device: While most other providers allow you to include multiple devices in one subscription, Norton limits its service to one device. The company says it intends to open the subscription up to multiple devices in the future.

Bottom Line

Norton WiFi Privacy Secure VPN is easy to set up and use to quickly protect your mobile traffic. The app is a good choice for those who don't want to fuss with settings and who are looking for a VPN from a trusted company.
