Summary

Are you a frequent user of public Wi-Fi or hotspot networks? If so, you're not alone.

Many public connections are not as secure as they might seem to be. When you connect to a public Wifi or hotspot, you become vulnerable to hackers and government surveillance agencies who can view and steal personal and essential information from your devices.

Urban Shield allows you to protect your IP and digital fingerprints from leaking to the wrong hands or prevent identity theft, regardless of whether you’re in a public place or your own home.

With the Urban Shield browser extension, you can:

🎭 Mask your identity and add a privacy layer to any connection – Public or from your home/office. 🔍 Hide your IP address and better conceal your Digital Fingerprints 🔄 Change your IP in Public Hotspots 🚫 Block annoying ads to make your surfing experience smoother

This extension is an all-in-one solution. There is no need to download additional software - Click "Add to Edge" to install the extension, and you are set to browse freely.
