What is a VPN?

A VPN, or virtual private network, is a secure tunnel between your device and the internet. VPNs protect your online traffic from snooping, interference, and censorship.

How does a VPN work?

A VPN (virtual private network) is the easiest and most effective way anyone can protect their internet traffic and hide their identities online. As you connect to a secure VPN server, your internet traffic goes through an encrypted tunnel that nobody can see into, including hackers, governments, and your own internet service provider.

When you connect to a VPN service location, you are assigned a new IP address, and your true IP address is hidden. Because this new IP address is shared by many other IPBurger users, there is no way to connect you to any activity. This helps keep you anonymous online.

What is a VPN: FAQ

A VPN (virtual private network) is the easiest and most effective way anyone can protect their internet traffic and hide their identity online. When you connect to a secure VPN server, your internet traffic goes through an encrypted tunnel that nobody can see into, including hackers, governments, and your own internet service provider.

Both VPN and proxy reroutes your internet traffic through a remote server and hides your IP address so websites can’t see your original IP or location. However proxies work on the application level, meaning it only reroutes the traffic coming from a single app you set up. A VPN works on the operating system level, meaning that it redirects all your traffic, whether it’s coming from your browser or a background app.

 

A VPN also encrypts your traffic between the internet and your device. That means your Internet Service Provider (ISP) monitoring your internet activity and collecting data about you can no longer see what you’re doing online – just that you’re connected to a VPN server. The encryption also protects you from government surveillance, website tracking, and any snoopers or hackers who might try to intercept your device. A VPN provides you ultimate online privacy and security.

All our VPN links are 100Mbps, which is faster than most broadband Internet links, and more than enough to access streaming services or do fast downloads. But, depending on your location, the distance between the servers and your computer, there may be a delay in the connection setup. For example it may take time to perhaps connect to a website or begin a download. Once the connection is made, the download speed won't be affected much. If you do notice that your connection has slowed, make sure you’ve selected the server closest to your actual location.

VPNs are legal and used by individuals and companies around the world to protect their data from snoops and hackers. Illegal online activity remains illegal, whether you are using a VPN or not.

Most free VPNs deliver a subpar experience, with connections bogged down by a flood of users, no customer service, no encryption, and few VPN server locations to choose from. With a paid VPN provider like IPBurger, you’ll enjoy connections optimized for speed, security, and stability, and you’ll have a choice of expanding server locations around the world. Plus you can contact our Support Team 24/7 with any questions.

VPN is a privacy and security tool. It's great for unblocking geo-locked services like Netflix and Hulu, masking your IP address and increasing your online anonymity.

 

Note: IPBurger VPN is not a Fresh, Dedicated or Residential proxy. Those services have their own special uses and VPN is not a replacement.

We neither have an intention nor we give an opportunity for someone to monitor your activity online. We also never store connection logs, meaning no logs of your IP address, your outgoing VPN IP address, connection timestamp, or session duration. Our guiding principle toward data collection is to collect only the minimal data required to operate a world-class VPN service at scale. We designed our systems to not have sensitive data about our customers; even when compelled, we cannot provide data that we do not possess.
