Hi, herbiefollin 

 

Welcome to the Trend Micro Home Users Community! 

 

VPN Proxy One is only for Mac computers. It will protect your online privacy, your IP address is hidden when you turn on the VPN. This restrains others from identifying you and your location and accessing your browsing history. You may check how it works here.

 

The Web Guard feature of Mobile Security allows you to filter content on your preferred browser with the use of Trend Micro Virtual Private Network (VPN). If you have other VPN services, you'll need to disable the Web Guard to prevent conflict. You may also check this link to know more about Web Guard feature. 

 

Trend Micro WiFi Protection turns any public hotspot into a secure WiFi via Virtual Private Network (VPN) with bank-grade data encryption to keep your information safe from hackers. Here the link to know more about it Trend Micro Public WiFi Protection.

 

Hope this helps.

@rochellemae_bautista it doesn’t 100% help, but it made a couple things more clear.

So, Web Guard is essentially just (what I would call) a basic VPN, strictly for filtering malicious websites?

Proxy One is available on iOS too though; not only Macs. Would Proxy be like one step up from Web Guard for security, with WiFi Protection being the highest level of security?

Sorry if I sound dumb. I’m a little new to VPNs!

Thank you for your response, herbiefollin

 

Yes, Web Guard uses local VPN and it is for website filtering. VPN Proxy One encrypts your online activities while Trend Micro Public WiFi Protection is mostly used in public wifi to check if the connection is secured or not.

 

Let us know if you need further assistance.
