PureVPN has surely grown over the first half of this year. In April, they launched their Costa Rica server. In May, they released their iOS app. And just recently, they launched their new Android App. The PureVPNAndriod app is in beta testing, but v4.x is ready for users. The growing Android user population prompted this app addition to the PureVPN product list. Android smartphone and tablet users can now get the same PureVPN protection.
There are more than 900 million active Android devices on the planet. This is not surprising considering the open source platform’s popularity. And pairing with mobile device manufacturer giants like Samsung, LG and HTC has boosted user demand for Android devices. It is no wonder with this high demand that online criminals have lately been targeting Android users.
PureVPN has stepped up to the plate with their Android VPN app to extend their VPN protection and perks to these users. The app works on Android versions 4 and above. There is no support for older Android phones, but the app will work on phones that have been rooted. For more information on VPN providers offering apps for Android, please see our Top VPN Provider page . Users of older Android versions can find providers that have compatible apps.
The PureVPN Android app is now available for download at the Google Play Store. It is also available at the PureVPN website. Users will need an account to get the app. PureVPN users can enjoy features like one-click access, OpenVPN support, unlimited speed and server switching, and 24/7 customer support. Users need only enter their credentials to access the service. Users will have access to 12 VPN servers in three countries – the US, Canada, and the UK. They can enjoy secure surfing, anonymous access to location-restricted content and privacy from snooping.
With today’s mobile lifestyle, the Android app is an essential tool for protection against online theft and government spying. Mobile devices are now the main way through which people connect to the Internet. Mobile device protection is now therefore the main Internet security concern. Users will enjoy a highly optimized gigabit network with up to 256-bit encryption. The PureVPN Android app prevents monitoring and tracking from ISPs, data-gathering Internet companies, and snoopers.
The Android OS has had its share of vulnerability issues. Google recently released a patch for a 4-year-old problem. So progress is being made in fixing these vulnerabilities. But users can’t go through 4 years of exposure to major threats for every security issue. The PureVPN Android app gives users an option to better secure their Android devices. They can also enjoy greater VPN functionality with the Android app. Access and communications through the devices will be secured, even at WiFi hotspots.
