Whenever a web user connects to a public wi-fi hotspot their data is protected by a bank-grade encryption and they are kept totally anonymous on the network. Their IP address, personal details, and online activity are all hidden. Protect yourself from identity theft and cybercrime while traveling and at home.
When traveling protect your passport, medical records, and other data in an online Swiss vault included at no additional charge with your Travelers United Membership. Your data is protected by Swiss laws, which are some of the most restrictive in the world. Personal data is defined as a “precious good” and is housed in one of the country’s numerous Cold War era army barracks, tucked away from view behind four-tonne steel doors built to withstand a nuclear attack. The tight security includes biometric scanners and an armed guard while its exact GPS location remains a jealously guarded secret.
