Why you should use a VPN
In times when industry and agencies are trying to intercept and retain as much data as possible, it makes sense to encrypt your entire network traffic at all times. This can protect you against a number of attacks which are common on the Internet. Additionally you make sure that your identity remains anonymous, because the origin of your Internet connection cannot be traced back to you.
A VPN provider is an interesting alternative to services like Tor, especially because with Perfect Privacy you can use the full bandwidth and speed of your Internet connection.
Your right to be secure and anonymous on the Internet
Every user has the right to communicate securely and anonymously on the Internet. It is good practice to exercise this right as a matter of principle, so whenever you send sensitive data your privacy remains protected.
As many media reports revealed, it is common practice for Internet service providers and other platforms (Facebook, Twitter, et al) to store as much information about users and their behavior as possible. A VPN provider helps you to keep your data trail as minimal and anonymous as possible.
Obviously you need to be sure that your VPN provider itself follows a strict non-logging policy. Perfect Privacy does not store any IP addresses or other information about its users whatsoever and our VPN servers are running on RAM-Disks so that no data is ever stored on hard disks.
Who should use a VPN?
A VPN access is useful in many cases and a sound solution for anyone who uses the Internet on a regular basis and is concerned about his security and privacy.
Advantages of a VPN Connection
Secure in Public Hotspots
Are you travelling a lot and use public WiFi hotspots frequently? In this case securing your connection is vital as you should never trust any public hotspot: Everyone in its coverage area can read all unencrypted traffic being sent over the network.
It is also a possibility that criminals set up a so-called rogue hotspots to intercept your data – with a VPN connection you are protected against such attacks as well since no unencrypted data will be sent over the wireless network. You can also use your smartphone or tablet to use VPN, this functionality is already implemented in Android and iOS.
Protection against Data- and Identity-Theft
Without the protection of a VPN provider you disclose your own IP address to the public. This could allow remote attacks on your network. Particularly, this poses a risk for users who are not very tech savvy, since they usually cannot determine whether their network is adequately protected.
By using a VPN connection you can avoid this risk, because your IP address remains undisclosed. Instead only the IP address of the VPN server you are using can be seen. In the case of Perfect Privacy these servers are operated with best possible security measures so that successful attacks are highly improbable.
Access Country-Specific Content and Avoid Censorship
Many services and offers in the Internet are restricted to specific countries. For instance, German TV Station ZDF offers a stream of their TV program but only for users who are connected with a German IP address. Same applies to many other websites in many countries.
You can circumvent such restrictions, provided your VPN provider offers you servers at the location you need. With Perfect Privacy you can choose what country to use, for instance our Frankfurt server to access the ZDF Mediathek. However, you should always inform yourself what content you are allowed to use to avoid copyright violations.
