F-Secure Freedome for Mac OS X users this summer

F-Secure transfers the fight for digital freedom to new fronts, releasing new versions of Freedome, its privacy protection application. The new version, named Freedome for Mac , was presented on March 1 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The new version of Freedome, which offers a popular VPN for Apple computers with OS X, will be launched in the summer of this year.

The Internet offers easy access to a wide range of content and services. However, current trends in digital surveillance are discouraging the use of these resources. According to a recent study by the analytical company GfK, 88 percent. respondents are concerned about the privacy of their personal data, and 48 percent due to these concerns, it avoids the use of certain digital services.

People are forced to transmit more and more private data to take advantage of the services offered online, "says Samu Konttinen , vice president of consumer safety at F-Secure. - They are more aware of this than before, but they are still worried because they are constantly required to pass control over their privacy in exchange for using the Internet resources.

F-Secure Freedome is a user-friendly VPN service that helps you protect yourself against unwanted digital monitoring. A one-button tool for identifying malware, blocking unauthorized tracking and changing a digital location to access your favorite content allows people to enjoy digital freedom without compromising privacy or leaving digital traces. The Freedome application is currently available for Android, iOS and Windows users, but the new versions will also protect Apple computers with the Mac OS X platform.

According to Konttinen, extending privacy protection to additional devices will help secure more users and will discourage companies from targeting them online.

"Network tracking has become common because the average internet user can not prevent it. Using Freedome is a signal for companies and organizations that they must start respecting our right to digital privacy. "

Konttinen expects the new offer to be a success thanks to the functionality and a transparent interface that has gained the users' approval on other operating platforms. The Freedome panel, which is actually one button, helps users enjoy the use of Internet resources.

F-Secure is a leader in the field of providing protection in the network, and its technology has been receiving the AV-TEST's Best Protection award for four years. The Freedome application for Windows, iOS and Android is now available as a 14-day trial version on the F-Secure website. The version for Mac OS X was announced on March 1st during F-Secure MobileFocus Global at the Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona and will be launched in the second quarter of 2015.
