Spotflux is a global, cloud-based service providing online privacy and security services for users. Users download an application to their desktop, which then enables several privacy and anti-virus services:
- Secures internet connections through encryption, protecting electronically transmitted data.
- Blocks online ads, which could contain tracking and spyware applications that log users' private information and browsing history.
- Scans in real-time for malware viruses that could potentially infiltrate users' systems and compromise personal data.
- Unblocks services blocked in non-US countries, such as YouTube, as a side-effect.
There are two modes of operation available: VPN with filtering and VPN only without filtering.
Spotflux is supported on both Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows. Mobile app versions are available for iOS (from iOS App Store) and for Android.
