Yes! eSIMs provide a private, secure mobile data connection via cellular networks around the globe.
It's just as if you're using a physical SIM card with a monthly data plan, except you're accessing that connection using an eSIM on a prepaid basis without the pain of a contract.
Hopping on public Wi-Fi networks can be risky (especially in busy spots like airports and hotels) because the connections aren't secure.
But with an eSIM, you're getting all the security advantages of a reputable cellular network with encryption and authentication.
