Spotflux is an extremely simple security tool which provides a host of features and functionality with the absolute minimum of hassle: it just works.
The program encrypts and secures your internet connection, for instance, preventing others from intercepting your personal details.
Spotflux is also permanently scanning your connection for inbound malware. It detects and blocks ads, eliminates tracking ads, and even conceals your true IP address to maintain your online privacy.
And there's no complicated interface you must navigate to make this happen. You don't have to set up antivirus scan times, or choose the sorts of threats you'd like the program to check for. In fact the main window only really allows you to turn Spotflux on and off; this really is a security tool that anyone can use without difficulty.
The Spotflux tool itself is Java-based, and the main client required around 22MB RAM on our test PC. We also noticed a small drop in web performance as our traffic was redirected through the Spotflux cloud. On balance, though, it seems like a capable tool which improves your security and privacy without any of the usual hassles.
Spotflux offers an easy way to encrypt your connection, hide your current location, and eliminate incoming malware.
