Samsung's Galaxy S9 may be launched with these features in 2018

The Secure Wi-Fi VPN service encrypts the outgoing Internet traffic and disables tracking apps and website. Today, the South Korean giant rolled out a software update to the Galaxy Note 8 that brings a new service that protects the device against Wi-Fi exploits like KRACK and more.

This not only keeps the smartphone out of the view of anyone who might be snooping on the Wi-Fi network, but can also allow users to get around network restrictions; for example some sites might be blocked in certain countries or through some hotspot providers.

As far as the specifications are concerned, the upcoming Galaxy J2 Pro is said to have 5.0-inch HD screen (1280x720p) display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, Android Nougat (with Oreo update coming later), Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a full day battery.

However, Secure Wi-Fi only offers 250MB of free and secure internet access though Samsung's service, so it's really created to be a tool for making secure connections rather than access blocked and geo-locked sites and content. Besides, it may also hinder the Note 8 from connecting with other devices running on the same Wi-Fi network. Samsung says that in addition, Secure Wi-Fi it might not work with some networks, apps, and websites that have their own security policy. Folks at SamMobile point out that Samsung may have collaborated with McAfee for the service. That's my subtle way of saying that not every Galaxy Note 8 has Secure Wi-Fi - according to SamMobile, only the global unlocked Galaxy Note 8 has the VPN service baked in, though we'll see if that changes. Once it's enabled, users can manually pick which apps use it. Only the global unlocked Galaxy Note 8 has VPN services in them. Alternatively, they can pay either €0.99 or €1.99 for 24 hours or one month of unlimited browsing, respectively.
