Secure Email & Data Vault
Includes a secure email account where messages are fully encrypted at all times and stored in secure servers in Switzerland. Even your communication with non-Guard Street email users is secure. Includes 25 GB of storage.
Create, manage and securely store encrypted passwords and documents of all types (medical records, financial records, travel itineraries, etc.) using military grade encryption and with the protection of Swiss Privacy Laws. Your data is also scanned for viruses as you back them up.
Virtual Private Network (VPN)
When you activate our secure web activity tool, your credit card, banking information and other personal information you may use will be hidden from criminals, fraudsters, hackers and big data marketers. We not only hide your IP address, we change it, making your activity secure from tracking the sites you navigate. As a result, they can’t build a profile about you which could compromise your privacy.
Our fast, high bandwidth virtual private network is not a public network and allows you to avoid seeing ads. It also allows you to access restricted sites overseas like ABC, CBS, Fox News and more.
Private Web Browsing
Check your privacy exposure on multiple websites as you browse. Block over 2,000 trackers from following you online. See which websites could sell your data and easily request that they delete what they hold on you.
A password management program
The new part of our cybersecurity program is the password management program. It allows you to keep complex secure passwords safe and accessible so you can use them. Read more here.
We know you appreciate Travelers United’s efforts that have resulted in better rules for travelers
- During the pandemic, when airlines canceled flights, passengers received a full refund or airfare and any extra fees paid to the airline. Both domestic and international flights were protected because we had your back.
- Travelers can change airline reservations within 24 hours of booking (unless flights are booked within a week of travel).
- Increased the lost/damaged/delayed checked-luggage compensation to $3,500.
- Increased the denied boarding compensation to as much as $1,350 in cash whenever travelers are bumped.
- Honest advertising now includes all mandatory taxes and fees in airline advertising.
- DOT’s customer complaint systems are now on the Web.
