Today, GL.iNet, a leading developer of reliable and secure networking devices, announces the launch of a portable 4G LTE Privacy Router, Mudi. Concerning Internet-based crime, one of the fast growing security threats in the world, GL.iNet’s R&D team developed this “Cyber Shield” at an advanced level. Without binding a particular area, Mudi secures the users’ information from any cyber attack in 24/7 once the devices are connected to Mudi. With the efforts and approvals, Mudi is a CES 2020 Innovation Awards Honoree in Cybersecurity and Personal Privacy.
“Privacy is based on transparency and free choice”, said Dr. Alfie Jianbin Zhao, CTO of GL.iNet. With this concern, Alfie questioned about the trade-off between convenient and privacy. “Unlike cybersecurity for home network, public network users have no option to protect their private information.”

Mudi works more than a typical travel router, and it secures personal information at an advanced level with the new implementations:
(1) Tor Anonymous Network Routing: Backed by world-class researchers, Mudi has installed Tor (The Onion Router) service, and it is easy to switch on or off. After Tor service is activated, Mudi can encrypt and bounce communications randomly through a network of relays that run by volunteers around the world.
(2) Greater Commercial VPN Provider Compatibility: Mudi keeps the Internet connection private with multiple VPN protocols, and it uses WireGuard® to give the privacy-minded users a fast and simple VPN that utilizes state-of-the-art cryptography, and,
(3) Encrypted DNS with Cloudflare DNS over TLS (HTTPs): using Cloudflare to obtain a fast, secure, and authoritative DNS performance can prevent DNS hijacking and domain theft.

Just one more step to connect Mudi before the device is connected to public Internet. It can protect sensitive data from the risks of hackers (especially man-in-the-middle attacks), viruses, and data leaks when using public Internet.
