HMA Announces HMA Pro iOS App
If you’re on the Hide My Ass VPN service and you have an iOS device, there’s good news for you. HMA announced that they have released the Pro VPN iOS App, which makes it much easier to use the service with an iOS device.
The new software is completely free to download. It makes it much easier to create and install VPN profiles for iOS devices. It also provides access to more than 460 servers in more than 60 countries. HMA is a very large network and this app allows you to take advantage of that.
You can use a number of protocols with the service, allowing you to choose the highest possible levels of encryption or to take it easy on the processor in your iOS device and still make it much harder for anyone to peek into what you’re doing online. Of course, you do get all of the other advantages that go along with a VPN service, including the ability to access content that is geo-blocked from your home nation.
Responding to Demand
In light of privacy scandals involving government agencies such as the NSA, corporate advertisers and the need for privacy on the whole, VPN services have become much more popular than ever in recent years. The segment of VPN users who use Apple products is growing and HMA created this app in response to that demand.
The interface should be very easy to learn for anyone familiar with HMA already and, in fact, it’s remarkably simple. HMA provides excellent encryption and plenty of server options, so there’s no shortage of advantages.
Do You Need Mobile VPN
In a word: yes. Having a VPN service on a mobile device provides the same type of protection that it provides on a desktop, but there is even more reason to take advantage of that on a mobile device.
Your mobile device may hook up to Wi-Fi connections that are honeypots set up by hackers, allowing them to access your information. Your mobile device, even if it’s on a Wi-Fi that you have every reason to believe is safe, may also transmit information that individuals can intercept in transit and use to compromise your security. Location-tracking services that use Internet connections are also foiled by VPN services, so that is one more reason to have them installed on your mobile device.
If you’re an HMA customer with an iOS device you need protected, doing so just got a lot easier.
