Yet Another Reason to Use Boingo, Free VPN!

WiFi service aggregator Boingo will offer a free VPN as part of its access service, beginning now in beta and rolled out gradually over the next several months. If you are looking for a reason to purchase the service, this is a good one.

To scare you into submission, they have published this white paper. The risks mentioned are real, and the benefits of using a VPN are big. As more of us travel and use more online apps, having this basic protection just makes a lot of sense.

The VPN will be integrated into their Wi-Finder Apps, so other than updating your app, you won’t need to run any additional software.
