Anonymous Surfing With A VPN service

By Edited Nov 24, 2016 1 2

Anonymous VPN (virtual private networks) provide private browsing


Surfing the Internet has become an integral part of our lives. We go online for various reasons that can range from leisure, communication to business purposes. The Internet can really be as big as we want it to be. And most people have been maximizing the benefits that the World Wide Web can provide. But like they always say, there are two sides of the same coin. While there are advantages, there are also disadvantages when using the Internet.

We have anonymous VPN services which can protect us from one of the biggest drawbacks on the Internet which is exposure to risks of computer hacking and cyber crimes. Hacking means gaining illegal access to a person’s file or network. This can lead to meddling with your online transactions and misusing of your account information for objectionable purposes. To address this, one can opt for safe, anonymous surfing. Anonymity in surfing allows one to browse the Internet without leaving any means of tracking one’s computer’s IP (Internet Protocol) address.

This is achieved through an intermediatry between the surfer’s computer and the Web by masking your computer's IP address. By intermediatry, we mean that when you click on a website, your request goes to a server which conveys it to the Web. The Web in turn sends the requested page back to the server (or the anonymous VPN) that forwards it to your computer. As a result, the site can only track the IP address of the server (or the VPN) and not your computer IP.

Masking IP address, on the other hand can be achieved through various ways. One is by using an anonymous VPN service. VPN or Virtual Private Network is a private network that uses public network such as the Internet to provide users with secure access to the network and at the same time, hide their computer’s IP address and thus allowing them to surf anonymously. Because each fast VPN connection is anonymous on the Internet, thus,  your online activities are kept private and safe. This can be a good option for people who want to ensure their safety and privacy while online. But there is more to using an anonymous VPN than just keeping you secure. This service can also be a good way of defying local Internet restrictions and unblocking sites that may not be permitted in your region. And this is done without causing your connection to slow down.

Anonymous surfing via an anonymous VPN offers more advantages (not just Internet safety) but complete privacy too.
