I used to use an Iron Key(secure vpn drive) to pay my bills online at the banking website. I also used it to buy things and put in my credit card numbers. I just found out that they no longer provide this service so I am not sure what to do since I live in a building with an unsecured public wifi...

Please give me some alternatives.

Thank you so much!

If you just used it to access banking etc you might try a free VPN service: VPNBook, Windscribe (10GB), Cyberghost (ads), TunnelBear. Probably more but iam familiar with those having used them in the past.


In linux i used VPNoneclick which installed the Chromium browser without any notice nor could I find any info on there web site about it installing other software. Not real thrilled about that. Uninstalled it.


I now use a paid service.

In any case there is a boat load of VPN information you should look at here to help make a informed decision.
