Boingo Wireless has released the availability of its latest Wi-Finder app for Macbook and Windows laptop and netbook users. The updated version of the app includes the Boingo VPN (virtual private network) to help protect users against security exploits in public Wi-Fi hotspots.

Boingo’s VPN – previously launched on iOS apps – provides a security solution that can help users protect themselves from common security exploits. With one click, users can encrypt their Wi-Fi connection and protect their personal data. The Boingo VPN uses around a dozen VPN servers worldwide.

The VPN uses a customer’s Boingo account to authenticate in one simple step. The service is free to all Boingo Wi-Fi users who have set up an account.
