    Still in beta-testing and there may be quite a wait for actual testing.

    F-Secure launches NSA-Proof Freedome.

    For ultimate Mobile/Tablet privacy. Essentially it appears to block trackers, and offer VPN support, a sort of F-Secure TOR network.

    http://freedome.f-secure.com/en/home.html
    Freedome by F-Secure is a next-generation solution that provides security you’ve come to expect but with radical new privacy tools that allow you to connect safely on any networked without being tracked by anyone. You can set your location virtually to be anywhere in the world at any time. And it’s all powered by a cloud that’s located in Finland, outside the reach of the NSA or NATO. With one button you can turn on and connect to any site you wish, without the fear that you’re helping the government build a case against you.

    In a post-Snowden world, freedom is still worth fighting for. Until the governments of the world change, the tools that are used to keep the masses in check can also be used to help us be a little freer.

    Tested, it's fantastic, and fast.

    However, a few concerns;

    1) They don't offer a Kindle/Amazon version.
    2) Forced into Googleplay - a lot of us don't use Googleplay, or cannot for whatever reason.
    3) No way to sign up for it on their website, it's in-app GP purchase, big mistake.
    4) No family plan, too expensive!

    Otherwise, fantastic. If they had a family plan, offered a non-play version, and a way to sign up on their own website it would be golden.. Already tested it on a Kindle Fire, and it works perfectly, 100% mask of activity, and location. However Kindle users cannot download it unless they use an APK-Downloader to siphon it off GP, and Kindle users cannot subscribe to it due to in-app GP purchase only.

    Barring that, it would be perfect.

    I beta tested it a while back. It seems to work great....but then again several free options work as well (maybe not with VPN though).
