Karma and FLTER announce joint efforts to improve privacy
Karma Mobility, who recently announced their new privacy-focused Wi-Fi hotspot called “Karma Black”, and Flter, a tech company with a strong focus on security products, announce joint efforts to improve privacy for users surfing the internet.
With changes this year to U.S. regulations on the sharing of internet users’ personal surfing habits, the need for technical privacy have drastically increased. As it stands, product and marketing companies are now allowed to purchase from service providers information about the websites, blogs, videos and images accessed over the public internet. Karma and Flter believe that allowing users anonymous access to the internet is the only way to protect the privacy that people expect when working or playing online.
“It is a simple matter of working with the best technology people and companies in the market to solve one of the biggest problems of our time…online privacy.” Says Todd Wallace, CEO of Texas- based Karma Mobility. “We have spent months looking for an innovative company that we can work with to enhance our IOT-enabled hotspot platform.” Mr. Wallace concludes, “Flter’s approach is technically sound, thorough and without a doubt one of the most comprehensive approaches we have found in the market today. By using Flter’s services the Karma Black device will now benefit from end to end encryption, ad blocking and active web protection. We are proud to be working with this really smart team.”
“Karma is the first company to offer encryption integrated into their Wi-Fi hotspot, which is a big step forward.” Says Peter DiPreta, CEO of Brooklyn-based Flter. “Karma has a great reputation for delivering creative Wi-Fi solutions.”. Mr. DiPreta concludes “Most companies are looking for new ways to mine data from their users. Karma is making a highly competitive move and we’re proud to be working with a company that actually values the privacy of it’s customers. It’s going to be fun to see them shake things up again.”
Karma Mobility began in 2012 with one simple idea: everyone should be able to get online, everywhere they go. Karma introduced the first peer-to- peer WiFi device that allows users to pay- as-they- go, with no contracts, and is made for sharing. Today Karma is the choice for people on the go who travel for work and leisure, or need an extra connection as a backup or for special circumstances. Karma continues to disrupt the WiFi with innovations like the best in market priced DRIFT pay as you go plan. Visit yourkarma.com for more information.
