Why do you need WiFi Security (VPN)?

WiFi Security is the protection of devices and networks connected to a wireless internet environment. WiFi Security products protect your connection from malicious hackers, ISPs, targeted ads and others who try to spy, track or intercept your data.

With Webroot’s WiFi Security you can shield your online activity and location while browsing, shopping and connecting online. Also, our virtual private network (VPN) prevents ads from targeting you and hackers from spying on you.

How VPN and Antivirus Work Together


Antivirus is a program that you install on your computer, tablet, or smartphone to protect you from viruses, worms, and other malware that could infect your system. Depending on the kind of protection program you use, it can also protect you from going to bad websites that could try to download viruses onto your computer or mobile device. Some antivirus programs also include further features, like system optimization to make your computer run faster or secure password management.


A VPN protects your actual connection to the internet. Think of browsing the web like you're on a road trip. If you were driving on the open road, anyone watching could see where you went, how you got there, where you stopped on the way and more.

But if you drove the whole way through your own private system of tunnels that no one else could use, then nobody could spy on you. That’s what Webroot WiFi Security does. It stops cybercriminals from spying on everything you do on the web, so they can’t track or intercept your data.
