VPN Basics: What is a VPN?
There’s a good chance you have heard of the term VPN before. It stands for “Virtual Private Network” and in simple terms, it secures and protects your Internet connection. Whenever you are browsing the web on, the data you send to websites is potential unprotected.
What Is a VPN? What Is it Used For?
When you use a VPN, your IP address and location are hidden, your browser use and communications (online banking and video chats) are securely encrypted, and you can unblock censored content and watch whatever content you choose.
How Does a VPN Work?
When you access the Internet without VPN, you connect via your ISP (Internet Service Provider), which then connects you to the content you want. Your Internet use can be seen by your ISP’s servers.
On the other hand, when you use ItusVPN, you connect to one of our servers via an encrypted connection or a “VPN tunnel.” All transmissions and data that travel from between your device and our VPN server are encrypted so only you and our VPN server can view it.
With a VPN
The diagram below shows what happens when you use ItusVPN. Encrypted communications between your computer (or another device) and our VPN server, as well as transmissions between our server and your ultimate destination, are protected and anonymous. ItusVPN hides your IP address and changes your location, making it impossible to trace your Internet use, even while you break through firewalls to watch your favorite content.
Without a VPN
If you use the Internet without VPN, an eavesdropper can easily intercept unencrypted data and communications between your computer and the Internet. Plus, your IP address is exposed to advertisers, hackers, thieves and government surveillance.
Protect your identity
Stay safe from hackers and thieves
Once connected to ItusVPN, all your data is encrypted and indecipherable, so you won’t have to worry about passwords and other sensitive information being intercepted.
We don’t monitor or log your activities
Online privacy is not always well understood, and laws are ever-changing. However, we are firm believers in privacy as a fundamental right. We never share your details with anyone.
Prevent third parties from tracking you
By hiding your IP address and location, ItusVPN makes it harder for third-party sites and services to charge different prices or display targeted advertising based on location.
