Verizon launches its own VPN app for Android and iOS, offering it to customers at a price of $ 3.99 / month. The service that Verizon calls Safe Wi-Fi is presented as a way to block advertisers and protect one's privacy without having to sign up with a third party VPN company. The subscription is only available to some Verizon customers.
A VPN protects the user's data and retains their browsing activity privately while on a private or open WiFi network, such as one that they can connect to the library or local coffee shop. Verizon offers service through an app that supports iOS 10 and later, as well as Android 4.4.1 or higher.
Customers must be registered for either Verizon Plan, the new Verizon plan, one of the MORE Everything plans, mobile broadband plans, international plans or nationwide plans. The only exception is the 250MB MORE Everything plan; In addition, business accounts with ECPD profile, enterprise accounts, devices with enabled Push to Talk, non-nationwide plans and prepaid accounts can not be qualified to use Safe Wi-Fi.
