There is no free product in this product range. However, an older free product, Kaspersky Anti-Virus Free, has been repackaged in Kaspersky Security Cloud Free. Kaspersky`s Android app looks and resembles desktop construction. There are no significant technical optimizations, you can`t play with protocols, ports, or anything else advanced. But it`s easy to use, can connect automatically if you access unsecured or unknown networks, and comes with a 7-day trial version of the full plan if you want to learn more. Fortunately, the image improves dramatically when you log into a paid monthly account. This will bring you unlimited data usage, unlimited access to all sites, and support for up to five simultaneous connections, all for the very low price of $4.99. Purchasing a monthly account directly on Hotspot Shield costs 12.99 $US. Kaspersky Secure Connection uses the excellent OpenVPN protocol to create secure connections on Android and iOS. I prefer this to other options, because it`s newer and faster than many other protocols, and it also benefits from all the eyes of the open source community inspecting its code. A representative of the company said that Hotspot Shield`s proprietary VPN protocol is used on windows and macOS. Custom encryption tools are usually a red flag, as they`re probably not as well verified as open source standards.
The Kill Switch, a new feature, prevents apps from sending data when the VPN connection is interrupted. This is a common feature for VPN services and I`m happy to see it here. If Kaspersky Secure Connection is installed in Kaspersky Free, Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Kaspersky Internet Security, Kaspersky Total Security or Kaspersky Security Cloud, you do not need to perform any additional actions, the program will be installed automatically on your computer. Nevertheless, when we violently cut off our VPN connection, the client immediately notified us, which allowed us to stop what we did and reconnect manually. . . .
