Google Secure Access to Provide Free Secure WiFi in San Francisco

Google Secure Access to Provide Free Secure WiFi in San Francisco
Starting in the San Francisco Bay Area users will be able to connect freely to Wi-Fi hotspots provided by Google - with increased security.

The Search Engine giant is making public a client-based VPN (Virtual Private Network) access to its Google WiFi service that will make any connections to the Internet from inside its network virtually private and secure from other users' eyes.

The download is free, but there is no indication on the pages on when the service will be available to the public.

Google says that one of their engineers recognized that secure WiFi was virtually non-existent at most locations. As a result, he used his 20% project time to begin an initiative to offer users more secure WiFi access, with the Google Secure Access being the result of this project.

By the way, the translation for the Latin is "It is your concern, when your neighbour's wall is on fire".
