The Internet can be a dangerous place for you and your devices. From hackers trying to steal your valuable personal information to trackers snooping on your online behaviors, venturing into the world wide web without ample protection can be a treacherous endeavor. Meet Keezel, a portable smart firewall that will keep you safe both on the go and at home.

No More Questionable Wi-Fi

Keezel is primarily designed for securing potentially sketchy Wi-Fi hotspots that you may encounter. Public areas, internet cafes, coffee shops, hotels, and the like frequently offer free Wi-Fi hotspots for patrons. While this often is very convenient for regulars and travelers alike, public hotspots are often very insecure. Hackers operating in the area can easily access your data or monitor your browsing habits.

 

Keezel eliminates these dangers by serving as an intermediary between your devices and the Wi-Fi, encrypting your data in the process using a Virtual Private Network. Keezel is also useful in the smart home, functioning as an extra layer of security for all devices on your network or isolating potentially vulnerable smart appliances such as thermostats, lightbulbs, smart TVs, etc. from your home network.

Online Protection, Anywhere

Portability is a major benefit of Keezel, as most internet security peripherals are rather bulky, require AC power, or do not support onboard Wi-Fi connectivity. Keezel can be easily transported wherever you need online protection.

 

Inside you’ll find an 8000 mAh battery, with more than enough power to last an entire day of traveling and internet usage. As a bonus, Keezel can also charge your micro USB compatible devices on the go. The front USB port also supports a variety of third party connectors, allowing users to protect Ethernet devices or even hook up a 4G receiver for stable connections all over the world.

Maximizing Your Safety

Setting up Keezel is relatively simple, and you can go from an unsecured connection to safe browsing in a manner of minutes. Power the Keezel up, connect to it via anything with a web browser (smartphone, laptop, tablet, etc.), connect to the Internet, and off you go safely into the world wide web.
Keezel operates as a Wi-Fi hotspot that piggybacks off an existing connection, ensuring that you are the only one with access. Like many VPN devices, Keezel can unblock restricted content, block advertisements, and prevent elaborate phishing attempts.

 

To take full advantage of everything this device has to offer, you need to subscribe to their premium VPN service. Keezel is affiliated with a variety of well-known VPN providers and automatically determines the best connection when you connect to the Internet. Alternatively, you can purchase the standalone version to use with a VPN of your choice. Keezel is a great choice for people who are frequently on the go, providing safe and secure access to the Internet regardless of location.
