PrivateWiFi logoPrivateWiFi has launched their flagship private VPN service, aiming to protect consumers from unencrypted WiFi networks.

Similar to HotSpotVPN, PrivateWiFi is hoping to attract customers who utilize coffee bar or restaurant WiFi that want a little more privacy. As WiFi becomes more ubiquitous, not encrypting traffic is an increasing privacy concern and VPN is one solution.

An interesting difference between a traditional VPN like HotSpot and PrivateWiFi is PrivateWiFi's proprietary client. HotSpot and its competitors use standard IPSec / PPTP clients to connect to their VPNs, or use something like OpenVPN which is open source and free. We'll be taking a deeper look into PrivateWiFi's infrastructure in an upcoming review.

PrivateWiFi is available on a subscription basis, either monthly or yearly. Monthly will run you $9.95/mo whereas yearly goes for $84.95/mo. This is a standard "Buy 12 months for the price of 10" deal. A three day trial is also available. Further information is available on PrivateWiFi's website.
