Global cybersecurity company, Kaspersky announced that it has improved and expanded the list of available features for Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection users.
Key updates include the emergence of location-cities as well as the ability to connect a Kaspersky VPN service to a home router or other connected devices. Moreover, Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection now has a dedicated transparency and security page that explains how the service collects and processes personal data in case of law enforcement and government requests.
With the latest update, users can connect to locations-cities besides regions. Now 20 cities globally are available for connection. City-locations are currently available on Android, iOS and Mac devices. This feature for Windows will become available early next year. In total, users can now connect to 70+ locations in 54 regions.
Kaspersky said this will increase the level of privacy, since there is an option to vary the location without changing the country. Additionally, this will improve the reliability of the connection and service performance – users will be able to select another group of servers if, for some reason, the most optimal one does not work for them.
Consumers can protect their home Wi-Fi network by plugging-in routers via Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection. This feature is also available for any device that supports a built-in or standard OpenVPN client. If a user links a router to Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection, all devices connected to this router will be protected.
Moreover, users have the opportunity to plug-in devices and operating systems (OS) via OpenVPN to Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection that aren’t currently supported by the product directly. This includes Linux, Chromebook, FireTV and AndroidTV, among others. This feature is available for premium users.
HBO Max has now been added to the wide pack of available streaming platforms supported by Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection. The full list of streaming services includes Netflix, HBO Max, Disney +, Amazon Prime Video, BBC iPlayer and Hulu.
Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection now has its own transparency and security page explaining how the service collects and processes user’s personal data in case of law enforcement or government requests.
