A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is often your best bet when you want to browse the internet privately. Not only do most VPNs offer end-to-end encryption for secure data transmission, but they will also cloak your true location from prying eyes.
Many VPN services work in the same way, but Guardian Firewall by Sudo Security Group is a completely different type of VPN that aims to clamp down on user privacy even further by filtering outgoing data transmissions that could potentially expose personal information about you.
Guardian blocks trackers, protects you from security vulnerabilities, keeps aggressive advertisements at bay, and lets you see just how many times the app has protected your information from being snooped in a wonderfully-sorted bank statement-like interface.
The app doesn’t go into great detail about which apps are mining your information, and this is purportedly because Guardian doesn’t want to collect any information about the apps its users like to use. Nevertheless, it prevents your sensitive information such as email, GPS data, and behavior from leaving your device, and that’s what matters.
As for security, all data that passes through Guardian Firewall’s servers is protected by best-in-class IKEv2/IPsec with AES-256 encryption, so you shouldn’t have to worry about anyone intercepting your digital data transmissions along the way.
Guardian Firewall plays nicely with all iOS devices, and it installs just like any other VPN. Once installed, it connects on demand and can be toggled on or off from the Settings -> VPN preference pane or from the Guardian app on your Home screen.
Users can download and use Guardian’s VPN services completely free of cost, but access to the firewall features and increased data speeds will set you back $9.99 per month, $26.99 every three months, or $99.99 per year via the App Store’s subscription system. A seven-day free trial is also available for those who might want to see how the app works before buying.
It’s worth noting that up to five of your devices can access a subscription at one time, as long as they’re tied to the same Apple ID.
If you’re ready to secure your internet data and protect your personal information at the same time, then you can grab the Guardian Firewall app from the App Store today.
