Benefits of connecting via a VPN
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. It is commonly used by companies for remote users to connect to their office’s private network, by creating a fully encrypted “virtual tunnel” over the public Internet.
ConnectionVPN now enables all internet users to benefit from its advantages as well.
When you visit any website or send an email, use an IM or P2P program, etc, your IP address is known – in some case even to the other users. Most services also collect logs about what you search, read, download, buy, etc…
Your IP address reveals your location and can be used to identify you (kind of like a phone number, see yours at the bottom right of this page).
We make your actual IP address completely invisible, by providing you with a different, anonymous IP.
Anti-virus software protects your PC from viruses, and firewalls protect it from external attacks.
But only a VPN can safeguard your privacy and security once your data leaves your computer.
When using our VPN, your information travels in a fully encrypted “virtual tunnel” between your computer and our servers, preventing eavesdropping.
Most Internet Service Providers (ISP) and other companies also keep logs of everything (which websites you visit, your emails and chats, etc).
With the VPN, their logs then only contain heavily encrypted, useless data.
When using WiFi connections such as at hotels, cafes, airports, etc, it is shockingly easy for any curious bystander or cyber-criminal to intercept all your communications and even modify them on-the-fly (email, passwords, credit card numbers, etc).
Even at home, your WiFi signal goes right through your walls, and is often not very secure, and can be very easily cracked.
The use of email, chat, internet telephony, P2P, Facebook, YouTube, etc, is often blocked by companies, schools, ISPs and others. Some also use deep packet inspection to limit the bandwidth of certain types of traffic.
Our service enables you get around all of these limitations, giving you net neutrality once again.
It is well know that many countries censor and heavily monitor the internet. News sites, blogs, forums, Wikipedia, Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and more are often blocked in places such as Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Burma, China, Cuba, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, Jordan, Morocco, North Korea, Oman, Pakistan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Sudan, Syria, Thailand, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Yemen…
And the internet is every day being restricted in new ways, even in countries like Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Fiji, Finland, France, Germany, India, Italy, Singapore, Sweden, United Kingdom, USA, etc…
Say you were in a country with postal censorship, and wanted to avoid having your mail read and/or not delivered, you could put all your communications in a diplomatic envelope, which would then safely conveyed out of the country before being distributed to its final destinations, and the responses would then sent to you through the same channel. Our VPN does the same for all of you internet activity (with gateways in Europe and the USA).
