F-Secure offers 50% discount on 3-device subscription to Freedome

Apple users are unique to people using other devices, according to a research by F-Secure.

F-secure conducted the research in April 2015 and asked 20 questions to respondents in the US to get their views about security and online privacy.

46 percent of Apple respondents said they use mobile devices to make most of their commercial transactions compared to just 14 percent of non-Apple respondents.

According to the research, 56 percent of Apple respondents said they connect to public Wi-Fi more than once a week while 29 percent of non-Apple respondents said so.

Only 27 percent of non-Apple respondents either have or plans to use a virtual private network (VPN), as compared to 44 percent of Apple respondents.

On the other side, majority of Apple respondents said they would pay over 100 dollars to recover lost or stolen content, whereas the majority of respondents using other devices said they would only pay less than 100 dollars.

F-Secure said Apple users feel safe and creative than groups of people using other devices.

Additionally, research noticed 37 percent of creative respondents felt that they were more vulnerable to online threats than other people using the same devices, compared to just 25 percent of efficient respondents.

F-Secure’s Freedome VPN is a security app that respects people’s privacy, encrypts communications, blocks tracking attempts, blocks malicious websites and lets users choose from 17 different virtual locations to help them access geo-blocked websites and streaming services.

Freedome is currently available for iOS, OS X, Android, Windows PC and Amazon Fire devices with an extended 3-month free trial or 50 percent discount on 3-device year-long subscription.
