Do you think Anti-Virus programmes are enough for your safety? These are the questions when a Microsoft employee also had some difficulties to answer them in 1996. Although the employee named, Gurdeep Singh-Pall has developed a protocol called PPTP1 to secure himself from the people who use abuse of Internet, which was the first sign of VPN.

Public Internet is a LAN2 connection and everyone in this LAN can receive your sending or receiving data like your bank account, all your password and etc. Hackers and snoopers3 can access and track your Internet activity and gain benefit of it. In spite of this situation, you would rather use Soft VPN in public network connection to avoid snooping and tracking who take benefits from you. Soft VPN provides an encrypted4 tunnel which is a secure and private tunnel between your device and the Internet. In sum up, there is only the encrypted data that can be seen in this tunnel by third parties from tracking you.

So, how does Soft VPN work?

encrypted tunnel explanation

It can seem hard and complicated however it is easy to use Soft VPN. If you want to surf on the Internet via Soft VPN which creates an encrypted tunnel between you and VPN’s server which means your data is encrypted, goes in encrypted form to your ISP5 then to the VPN server. The VPN server is the third party that connects to the web on your behalf. The data sharing only happens between the server and the site itself. The site doesn't figure out that you connected and cannot receive your information. It receives data from the server and it cannot estimate your location. Because of the encrypted tunnel, nobody can see your data. In other words, hackers and snoopers aren’t able to access you because of the tunnel. They can only see encrypted information which they can’t decipher. Moreover, you can also access every website you cannot access in your country. There are some countries which don’t allow their citizens to access a couple of websites like Netflix, Twitter or WhatsApp. However, you can access them by Soft VPN. Just a second, how is it possible? Well, Soft VPN uses some protocols that allow the user to have encrypted and secure Internet connection which protects your online traffic from snooping, interference, and censorship. If someone gets and looks at what you are sending or receiving, they only see encrypted information and not raw data.

What is VPN

On the other hand, if you are not using Soft VPN, your device connects to the Internet directly. In this case, your data is shared and almost everyone such as governments, third parties, ISP, snoopers, hackers etc. can see and verify your data. Furthermore, your location can be found and your information such as credit card numbers and so on that you are sharing to the site can be deciphered by hackers, other snoopers and advertisers. Besides, you can’t access some websites which your government doesn’t allow you. As can be seen, Soft VPN provides you to have anonymously secure data and private access to the Internet.

What is VPN

To conclude, the Internet can be dangerous unless you use a VPN. It encrypts your communications, avoids censorship and surveillance and protects your identity from hackers and thieves. In other words, Soft VPN makes the Internet how it should be. Freely, private and unlimited.
