What is a VPN?
VPN (Virtual Private Network) — Is a technology that changes and hides your IP address and encrypts all the incoming and outgoing data while you use the Internet. This way you gain anonymity and are safe as no one can see what you are doing while surfing the web.
From your perspective, being one of the numerous "Instant VPN" clients, VPN is the technology that allows you to connect to our servers in Europe or America and get the possibility to use remote network resources as like you are there. In other words "Instant VPN" invites you to nestle in our European or American networks, obtaining a European or American IP address on your computer. Simply install our configure the VPN connection, enter your username and password and click the connect button!
How does your VPN service work?
Once you connect to our service, a secure internet connection is established between your internet service provider and our internet service provider. Everything you do online is 'encrypted' and essentially anonymous; anyone trying to break into your internet connection to steal sensitive data (e.g. on public Wifi networks) will not be able to because your web traffic is securely hidden. Websites you visit, usernames and passwords used to login to websites, people you talk to online, and files you download and share will be out of sight by third-parties trying to monitor your online usage and potentially steal sensitive information from you.Not only is your online traffic anonymous, your online identity in the form of an 'IP address' is also hidden. Your IP address is essentially your 'online fingerprint' and identification to the rest of the online world. Your IP address can tell people and websites your physical location, which internet service provider you are using and much more. You wouldn't show your identity to a random person in the street, so why would you reveal your online identity and location to potentially millions of online strangers?
Our VPN service is very easy to use, while VPN encryption may sound complicated to some people, you do not need technical knowledge to anonymize your online traffic and protect your online identity. All you need to do is configure the VPN connection, enter your username and password and connect!

What is the difference between a web proxy and a VPN?
Web proxies are often designed for web filtering and are designated (on LANS) by a WPAD file provided by a DHCP or are directly configured in the web browser. They redirect all traffic through another server for logging, filtering, security and compliance. These are fairly easy to defeat so it's not wise to use them. An inline device is trickier to defeat but does introduce a single point of failure for internet traffic. Proxies do not always, if ever, encrypt traffic.A VPN secures two end points of a network by using header or payload encryption. A site-to-site VPN looks logically like a directly connected network even though it often traverses a variety of networks. This is used for security and connecting disparate networks.
