How the VPN Service works

What the VPN does

A VPN tunnel ‘wraps’ the data that leaves your computer in a shielded ‘bubble’ and sends it to a remote server outside of the open network that you are on. This allows you to send your data, in total privacy, across the network–even on networks with thousands of users whose data is shared and open. In addition to securing your connection the Personal VPN unblocks YouTube, unblocks Facebook and all other sites often censored in many countries.

How we accomplish this

We do this through a VPN tunnel — an ultra secure, highly-encrypted connection between two computers. The secure tunnel is used to send all of your data, encrypted, through the local network connection. This is the same high-grade encryption that governments, banks and credit card companies use to process transactions. You no longer have to worry about anyone reading your email, watching where you go, picking up your passwords or recording your personal information.

Our Personal VPN servers

Our servers are hosted at some of the largest data centers in the world –located in North America, South America, Canada, Africa, Europe, Australia the Middle East and Asia. They are extremely reliable and fault tolerant. We operate hundreds of servers, isolated from each other, to provide this fault tolerant security. If a data center were to go down, other servers in different centers would still be up to handle the traffic.

All of your data travels, encrypted, from your computer directly to our secure servers. From there, it is forwarded to its final destination across the Internet. Nobody, including us, can see your data on the secure connection. Our Personal VPN service uses OpenVPN and WireGuard.  Also available are IKEv2 and L2TP.

Maximum Strength Encryption

All of our OpenVPN servers operate 256 bit AES encryption, SHA512 hash, TLS AES 256 and 4096 bit RSA. The OpenVPN implementation we use  provides perfect forward secrecy to insure your data remains secure over time.
