Google To Provide Free Secure WiFi in San Francisco

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:26 am

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and longed for a secure WiFi access, you’ve probably noticed that there are almost none existed.

Well this is how one of Google’s engineer felt too, but unlike everybody else he decided to do something about it.

Using his 20% project time, he began an initiative to offer users more secure WiFi access. Google Secure Access is the result of this endeavor.

The final outcome was that the search engine giant is offering a free VPN (Virtual Private Network) client access called Google Secure Access that allows you to establish a more secure connection while using Google WiFi. By using Google Secure Access, your internet traffic will be encrypted, preventing others from viewing the information you transmit.

If you choose to use Google Secure Access, your internet traffic will be encrypted and sent through Google’s servers to the Internet. The data that is received will then be encrypted and sent back to your computer.
