The Internet, where on one side provides valuable information, becomes highly vulnerable when it comes to security and confidentiality. I emphasize online security and anonymity in this article, and work around that is very effective for us and our family.
Every day we hear stories of “Unknown IPs” port scans and attacks on personal computer that are not well protected, or even if protected you don't even want to see access attempts in your logs, why should anyone even try to access your PC?. In such case there are work rounds that could ensure anonymity and safety online. We recommend VPN connection to hide our real IP behind other servers IP and gateway.
What happens is you dial onto any of the multiple servers that are provided with a VPN account, once connected, all your internet bound traffic goes through that server. So it's like server's IP is fetching the data you want and passing on that data to you on the back end, all in real-time of course. Thus you hide you real IP and get secured. You don't feel any kind of trouble or hindrance while connected with virtual private network setup, and it feels like you are browsing through your own default internet gateway. Internet speed is almost the same with you having a choice to connect to the server that provides the best speed.
Apart from security, the VPN prevents all kind of spying. Your ISP may be spying on you and recording all your activities, but you certainly don't want anyone to know where you go what you do when you're online. So once connected, the ISP goes blind of your online activity. Even when you are participating in open discussions online, blogging etc, there is always a chance for someone to get to know your identity, but again a VPN account comes to your rescue!
