International WiFi security compare with global 3G mobile broadband

Security, privacy and wireless connectivity without boundaries

Wireless internet access with no compromise on data security in Europe and all over the world.

Although it is free to connect at many WiFi hotspots, your information and privacy are both at risk.  Often, hackers will create false hotspots and landing pages to capture all your information, and even if you are building a VPN tunnel, your information is not safe at the time of logging in.

Today anyone with minimum knowledge can open and pretend to be a WiFi hotspot provider from a well know network at any location. If a hacker really wants to do something malicious or get information, they’ll go where the information is. WiFi hotspots have a higher concentration of web browsers and areas such as Airline clubs have a higher concentration of business travelers, who use hotspots to access crucial and often sensitive data.

With the MobilityPass 3G SECUREkey unique patent, your information is immediately encrypted at your location and cannot be hacked locally. You are locally totally safe.

The MobilityPass Dual factor authentication (hard and soft) require your 3G SECUREkey with your user name and password to be authenticated, then your connection will be locally encrypted without using a VPN client.

Strong authentication and global roaming encrypted connectivity in 120 countries, allow you to connect with one single data SIM card your notebook, laptop, mac,windows, EeePC, iPhone, Android, blackberry or any smart phone. The micro SIM card is also available for iPad users.

No contract, no monthly fees, no commitment just use it when you need it.

MobilityPass announces New Internet Locator

MobilityPass has launched the internet access locator that can help you connect to a Wi-Fi connection, anytime, anywhere. This is the age of internet. No matter if you are a big industrialist or a high school student, imagining a life without internet is very hard to imagine. When computer was first introduced in offices, it created a big change in the way people communicated. But at that time, the internet speed was abysmal and it used to take several minutes to just connect to the internet via dial up connections which used to hang up our telephone lines and had a mind of their own about staying connected.

Needless to say, a change was in the offing. People needed a more reliable and faster internet and thus, broadband and Wi-Fi connections were introduced. The availability of cheaper and faster internet brought it out of the office and helped it become a part of our daily life; both personal and professionals.

Today, we can access internet where and whenever we want. The Wi-Fi connectors have ended the need to connect the computer with the any device as we can now surf wirelessly. Needless to say, the technologically conscious people are looking for faster and newer devices to get connected.

MobilityPass have introduced this new product in the market to tap in the ever growing demand for Wi-Fi finders. The representative of the company claims that the device can find internet connection in more than 9,000,000 locations around the world. The device not only searches Wi-Fi hotspots but can also lookout for Dial up connections, ISDN, Toll Free and wireless broadband connections quickly.

And that’s not all. You can also search according to the country and city you are in. A list of nearest access points will pop up on your screen along with a details and map of the location. Thus, no matter whether you are in your own country or in some foreign land, you won’t have any difficulty in finding your nearest internet hot spot.

The company has made sure that only safe and verified connections are provided on the list of access points. This is extremely important for the safety of the users. After all, you don’t want to become a victim of identity theft in a foreign land due to a viral internet connection.

This locator is perfect for business and frequent travelers as it can also locate Dial up or free connections. Since not every country has 3G or Wi-Fi networks, this option can prove to be very helpful.

MobilityPass provides instant access to all those access point with only one worldwide account and login. This means that you don’t have to go on and run from pillar to post to get internet connection on your computer started.

MobilityPass has come up with a very useful device. Travelers or people who love to use internet outdoors can really use this device.

Ways to Keep a Mobile Internet Connection Secure

Keeping a hotspot connection secure is a main concern for Internet users as even many businesses are using hotspots for Internet access. Hotspots are free wireless networks that can be accessed by anyone in close proximity to the transmitter. These are unsecure meaning no WEP or WPA passwords or encryptions are being used. This makes sense for simple and non-personal information transfers but, can present a problem when dealing with sensitive work material or private data that needs to remain private. A few steps can be taken by hotspot users to protect their personal data while using a hotspot.
First and foremost is the use of a personal firewall although this should be a common practice regardless of the access point being used. A firewall will protect a user form others on the hotspot network from accessing their computer and using or uploading files. In addition the file sharing feature should be turned off; this can be done on any operating system and should be done every time a hotspot is being used for Internet access. While file sharing is a useful tool at home or the office, it can be detrimental when using a public or free hotspot location; anyone with knowledge of file sharing can steal or install files to the public folder on a user’s Internet device leaving them open to viruses and malware.
Any function of a browser to save and populate passwords for web sites and personal information like banking accounts should be turned off. An end user should consider not accessing any credit card or financial sites while on a hotspot regardless of the security steps they have taken. This will limit the accessibility of their personal information by anyone on the hotspot network. Find the location of the “remember me passwords” function typically located in the “tools” menu of a browser and turn it off. To ensure further security, if a webmail based email system is being used, find the most secure connection for the site. In most cases it will be an https connection. The “s” ensures an SSL certificate of security and is used on ecommerce sites for security practices.
The simplest and easiest way of obtaining secure access to free and commercial hotspots is through a wireless broadband Internet provider like MobilityPass. By using their secure connections users can access the Internet from public hotspots with the knowledge that their privacy is secure. In more than 90 countries a client of MobilityPass will be able to surf, pay bills, check investments and access company databases with no fear of being compromised. This includes hotspots in cafes, hotels, airports, trains and even airplanes; in fact over 100,000 hotspots are available to the MobilityPass subscriber for fast, free and secure Wi-Fi hotspot Internet access. Virtual private networking is included with the MobilityPass plans securing the connection even further. VPNs are considered to be the only way to fully secure a hotspot connection and customers receive this in their service from MobilityPass as well as confidentiality, security and privacy.

MobilityPass a secure internet access to Mobile Wi-Fi Hotspots

In order to connect to the Internet via a Wi-Fi hotspot a few pieces of information will be needed. A user will need to know the SSID, channel, mode, and WEP or WPA key to access the hotspot. When a user purchases the Wi-Fi services the ISP will provide this information to them. While many utilities allow for the wireless card or antenna to find and connect to a hotspot, it is important to understand the differences in secure hotspots and free hotspots. A secure hotspot is any area in which a user typically pays for the hotspot service. With this, security codes and passwords are provided that help to ensure the safe transmission and protection of personal information.
MobilityPass® offers a hotspot access program that gives users a secure hotspot access point from a variety of places such as airports, hotels and trains. With more than 100,000 hotspots worldwide in over 90 countries no user will put their privacy at risk when using MobilityPass. Along with security and privacy there is no activation fee and no contracts to be signed; you will only pay for the data transmitted. Most free hotspots are offered by cafes and community meeting places and typically not protected by any kind of encryption or security features. They are free and this means fewer resources for the Wi-Fi network to use for security. The public or free hotspots, like all hotspots, have limited access ranges and are typically only available around the business or building.
The problem is that any person on the hotspot or any person able to connect to the hotspot has access to your personal information sent over the network. A hotspot, by definition, is a wireless local area network or (WLAN), and the same rules of file sharing and remote access apply to them. A firewall installed on the user’s computer or wireless Internet device must be in place but, this only protects the information contained behind the firewall and not what is sent over the network to the Internet. When connecting to a hotspot make sure that it is a legitimate hotspot. Any person with a small amount of networking knowledge can set up a wireless network and call it what they wish making it look like a recognized company hotspot.
Always turn off file sharing when on a hotspot location because anyone on the hotspot network will be able to see the files in the shared or public folders to use or steal them; they could also upload a virus this way. If the Wi-Fi antenna is not being used regardless of being close to a hotspot it should be turned off. Hackers can use a peer to peer connection to find registry data and passwords while a user is not even online or close to a hotspot. In effect the user’s computer becomes a hotspot that can be accessed via another computer’s wireless connection. Paid hotspot providers, such as MobilityPass®, are the best and safest solution to protecting a user’s personal and private information.

How to Use iPhone 3G

The iPhone 3G is a combination of multiple functionalities culminating in a resourceful and versatile digital device. The 3G designation is not a designation of the version of the iPhone but, a designation of the data transmission technology being used. 3G allows for the fast transmission of data and information for use over the Internet by mobile computing devices. The basic specifications of 3G are that it transmits data up to 14.4 Mbit/s on the downlink and 5.38 Mbit/s on the uplink. This delivers faster surfing and improved video call functionality. With iPhone 3G an end user can be on a call and surf the web simultaneously.
By implementing a dual channel transmission, the new iPhone 3G offers higher flexibility and better performance to its users. This feature will enable a user to determine where to meet with friends or family while out on the town. All iPhone 3G phones will automatically recognize if a 3G network is available and connect to it automatically. The downside is that 3G networks are not available everywhere and in those cases the iPhone will use the provided network protocols for data transmission; in most cases it will be either a 2.5G network or an EDGE network. The iPhone 3G is more than just a phone with Internet access; it is a fully functional portable pocket computer with a phone.
The iPhone 3G can connect to any Wi-Fi network and keep the user informed of all updates via email and text messaging. Many users may want to upgrade their old iPhone to the 3G version of technology. Unfortunately, this is not possible. 3G requires new and specialized hardware to perform at its peak and the old versions of the iPhone cannot be upgraded to work on a 3G network. The 3G has an average download speed of 1.4 Mbs which is two to four times as fast as the EDGE network. Downloading music, files and images has never been easier and a user can do it while talking to their friends and family. Due to the nature of activation the iPhone 3G has to be activated in an Apple store or AT&T store in the US and not through iTunes.
The built in GPS locator is perfect for Geotagging images taken on a trip but, the GPS for directions has no voice commands so a co-pilot will be needed for determining the directions to the intended destination. A multitude of applications exist for the iPhone 3G from image apps to social networking and bookmarks. Of course the iPhone can be synced with a calendar, email, media or newsgroup account for constant connections to the most important pats of connectivity for users. MobilityPass offers 3G coverage with security, privacy and confidentiality to iPhone 3G users worldwide from over 75 countries and over 100,000 hotspots. Pay no activation fee and sign no contracts as users and clients can pay as they go and only pay for the data transmitted. They offer virtual private networking with every service plan securing the connection even further.

How Good is the iPhone Overseas?

The iPhone 3G is a versatile tool for the mobile communicator and computing individual and it comes with an unlimited data plan for the US only. Outside of the US, iPhone users will need to be on roaming for data transmissions which can add up quickly. The service provided by 3G networks still works the same way and provides the same speed of transmissions but, with the use of roaming the data iPhone bill will skyrocket. There are a few options available to iPhone 3G users to limit the amount of billing for use of the iPhone outside of the US for data transmission.
The first step is to turn off the roaming feature of the iPhone 3G; it is important that only the data roaming is turned off, otherwise no phone calls can be made. To turnoff the data roaming, be sure the iPhone has the latest edition of firmware and then proceed to the “settings” button. Next tap the “general” option and then the “network” option. Slide the data roaming indicator to the off position. While this works well when not using the data functions it will need to be turned on and off as needed to limit the amount of data used and transmitted.
Another option is the AT&T global data coverage. AT&T offers a data coverage program for the worldwide business person or traveler able to be used in 29 countries worldwide. This is a data package only and does not apply to phone call rates for overseas travelers. This plan only works on 3G networks and the security they provide does not translate into the use of free hotspots used by many travelers when in another country. Yes a user could use the data package to have less expensive data rates abroad but, will need a cellular network to access the Internet. In addition the end user will need to call AT&T prior to using the plan for it to be activated. With the advent of AT&T and iPhone allowing third party companies to provide data service overseas, another option is available to users of the iPhone 3G.
MobilityPass provides 3G coverage to iPhone 3G owners via service plans for wireless broadband Internet access. This service uses an international SIM card for data transmissions anywhere in the world with a 3G network. In fact, over 75 countries are included in the service which is far more than AT&T’s 29 countries. MobilityPass also provides secure and private access to Wi-Fi hotspots for use by their clients further improving the access to the Internet overseas. Every account has the option of prepaying for service or paying as the data is transmitted and no client ever has to sign a contract. Hotspots are paid for by the time used not the data transmitted. In addition a Wi-Fi Finder is provided that can export the search results to a GPS device for future reference in a business trip or family vacation. Overall, MobilityPass offers a cost effective alternative, wider coverage area and increased security when compared to other service providers.
