The Benefits of Using a VPN Provider

Here at SurfEasy we are passionate about our VPN service. We’re dedicated to offering you secure Internet access whether you’re using an Android mobile, an iOS device or a brand new tablet. But what are the benefits of using a VPN provider?

A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, acts as an encryption tunnel between you and the Internet, making sure that your Internet access is anonymous and that your web browsing is secure. There are a number of computers connected to a VPN, and the data of all of these computers is encrypted before they connect to the Internet. The SurfEasy VPN is a no-log network, meaning that we don’t log your data, web browsing, downloads or IP address on our servers. We want your browsing to be truly anonymous.

Whether you’re doing online bank transfers or simply reading your favorite news source, a VPN allows you to rest safe in the knowledge that your Internet usage is kept safe from prying eyes, whether those eyes belong to the NSA, another government surveillance agency or a hacker looking to steal your information. SurfEasy uses bank-grade encryption for all our customers’ data; we don’t settle for anything less than the best security available to us.

A VPN also hides your IP address from the web, meaning that you can’t be pinpointed to a specific location. With SurfEasy’s VPN, you can select a location, meaning that the Internet is tricked into believing that you’re located in that area.

Finally, a VPN allows you to feel secure in your anonymous web browsing no matter where you are. No matter if you’re at your home, in an airport lounge, or at your local coffee shop connected to their free public wifi, a VPN takes the risk out of access the Internet through public networks and other people’s net connections. It’s a portable security system that works on all your devices.

We should all be using a VPN service no matter what we do online, as Internet privacy is a very real issue. We rely so heavily on the web to transfer sensitive data on an almost daily basis that a VPN should be the absolute minimum level of security that we invest in.

With our great support team and transparent privacy policy, here at SurfEasy we’re happy to offer the best Virtual Private Network on the web­–and your first 500mb of secure browsing are for free!
