If you ever noticed someone following you around the neighborhood, you would probably call the police. Yet we allow thousands of companies to watch our online movements every day. Perhaps this is because the trackers are pretty discreet. You won’t ever see this stalker unless you read the fine print. Likewise, cybercriminals often break and enter online accounts without leaving a trace.

Happily, there is a simple solution. Beam is a new wireless router that encrypts all your web traffic. It also provides full VPN protection, even when you’re away from home.

What is the best way to protect your online privacy?

According to security experts, using a virtual private network (VPN) is the best way to protect your online privacy. A VPN uses masking servers to disguise your location and IP address.

There are loads of VPN service providers around, but nearly all require you to install special software. In contrast, the Beam router adds VPN protection to your entire network. The router also encrypts all your data, meaning it’s virtually impossible for anyone to hack your connection.

Aside from security, this system unlocks content from around the world. Instead of getting the annoying “not available in your region” notice, you can tune in to shows on sites like Hulu and iPlayer.

Where do you want to go?

Instant security

To start protecting yourself, you need only replace your current router with Beam. This device has four powerful antennae for dual-band, gigabit performance. In other words, it’s seriously fast. In addition, the router provides parental controls and remote access to your files.

App controls

Beam works with Forcefield VPN, a standalone subscription service that keeps no logs. The VPN automatically shields every device on your network, from laptops to phones and smart TVs. When you’re on the move, you can get the same protection by downloading the Forcefield app.

Mobile defence

Along with masking your IP address and location, Forcefield can block online trackers and malicious attacks. Your subscription comes with unlimited bandwidth, and all the data that goes through Forcefield servers is encrypted.

Complete protection

Tech-savvy users will also be pleased to note that Forcefield supports peer-to-peer downloads and Tor. Beam works with pretty much any ISP, and you have access to 24/7 live support.

“Beam encrypts all of your information so your internet provider can’t see what you’re doing and services can’t track you. It protects all the devices in your home from threats online, and keeps your physical location hidden so you can access any part of the internet from anywhere in the world. ” — Passel on IndieGoGo

The best bits

Online security can be a confusing subject, but Beam makes it simple. This router also provides impressive wireless performance.

Things to note

Many of Beam’s best features are provided with Forcefield VPN, so you are somewhat tied to one provider.
