  • Save money while traveling: Get all devices online for the price of one when being charged for Internet per device at hotels, on airplanes, etc.
  • Share any type of Internet connection with all your devices. Share connectivity from existing WiFi networks, LAN, DSL, 3G/4G, even tethered smartphones! You can even share a VPN connection over WiFi with Connectify free hotspot app!
