My Personal Experience with Spotflux internet privacy application

The product website was sent to me from the author who got to know about me through the web, before I downloaded the product, I carefully went through the website and I feel if all the recipes provided on the website were true, this product is worth trying out.

Experiencing no difficulty, I downloaded the software, which was redirected from CNET download.com, I installed and guess what, and the experience has been great so far.

My other internet provider usually has a difficulty in visiting some web at afternoon hours, the power of Spotflux has worked wonders, and the product is just great. Unlike the VPN and Proxy which redirects, Spotflux is something totally different.

What amazes me so much is that this service is free; I guess these guys are running a philantropy organization because I know how much I pay to get a VPN service. I have tried so much of them anyway; none has really pleased me to an extent.

Protect Yourself While Surfing Open Wireless Networks with Spotflux – by Netted by the Webbys

Someone once told us that using free Wi-Fi is the same as shouting everything you’re typing out loud. Which is definitely frowned upon at Starbucks.

With Spotiflux, a free download for Mac and PC, Internet usage is protected even when sharing a connection with total strangers.

Once logged on to the wireless network, flip on Spotiflux and browse as you normally would. The service encrypts your internet traffic, blocks malware and viruses, and hides your IP location to keep you anonymous.

It’s perfect for use in airports, hotels, and that cafe around the corner where struggling artists work on their novels.

They’re probably harmless, but better safe than sorry.

Spotflux Brings Privacy Back to the Web with $1 Million in New Funding from New Atlantic Ventures, Kima and Angels


NEW YORK, Mar 07, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Spotflux officially opens its doors today, introducing a free application that allows consumers worldwide to freely connect to the Internet with unprecedented privacy protection. Since its inception less than a year ago, adoption of Spotflux has grown exponentially, with more than 100,000 users across the globe depending on Spotflux to provide a more private, secure, and less restricted Internet experience. As part of its formal debut on Windows and Mac computers, Spotflux also announced today that it closed its first round of funding, led by New Atlantic Ventures and joined by a group of angel investors, including Paris-based Kima Ventures. The $1 million in new venture capital will be used to meet global user demand by advancing Spotflux’s technology, enhancing the consumer application and for worldwide brand building.

“Everyone online today has lost control of their privacy. Big companies like Facebook, advertisers, employers and governments look at everything you do online, and before Spotflux, no one was looking out for you,” said John Backus, founding managing partner, New Atlantic Ventures. “We invested in Spotflux because of these emerging privacy concerns and its universal appeal to the 1.2 billion people using the Web. Consumers, policy makers and activists are fighting the privacy issue hard but they often face a daunting and cumbersome process. Spotflux has removed the burden for more than 100,000 customers across 121 countries — before its formal launch — demonstrating that consumers are actively seeking a more secure, more private, more open Internet.” With the initial round of funding, Mr. Backus joined the board of directors.

Spotflux is a free application and allows you to connect to the Internet with unprecedented privacy protection from any computer, anywhere in the world. Spotflux gives you the freedom to use the Web like you always have, from shopping to social media, without unwittingly giving away private information like your location and where you spend your time online. Expensive off-the-shelf Internet protection tools protect you from traditional online threats but fall short by failing to understand that most threats to privacy can come from common websites or applications. Spotflux bridges this gap by providing an all-encompassing free, cloud-based solution to your online security and privacy. Spotflux gives you an easy to use, secure, limitless connection to the Internet by protecting your identity and fully encrypting your Web connection.

“We created Spotflux to give consumers the opportunity to take back control of their privacy online,” said Dean Mekkawy, co-founder, Spotflux. “There is a large gap between what consumers are willing to share online, and what’s actually being shared without their consent. Spotflux is bringing security, access, and privacy back to the web for everyone.”

Founders Dean Mekkawy and Chris Naegelin are technology entrepreneurs who have spent more than a decade solving large-scale information security challenges in the financial and public sectors. Mr. Naegelin is an award-winning technologist recognized for his enterprise-level contributions to the open-source community and as a contributing author to a widely adopted risk management framework. Both Mr. Naegelin and Mr. Mekkawy, were named two of the top 30 Entrepreneurs Under 40 by Bisnow in 2011.
