What is a VPN?
A VPN masks your IP address and adds a layer of security and privacy to your otherwise at-risk internet connection. Lacking a VPN connection is like walking in public with your IP address on full display; having a VPN will ensure a safe experience online by protecting your digital footprint from third parties.
Secure Your Network
Many websites fetch your data and target you with ads. ExtremeVPN keeps the information transmitted and received by your device anonymous and secure, protecting your data from getting into the hands of third parties, including cyber-criminals.
Provide Access To Geo-Blocked Sites
Some sites, specifically streaming platforms, implement geo-restrictions to grant access to a specific audience. ExtremeVPN switches your virtual IP address to a region away from your physical location. This allows you to browse the internet, stream geo-blocked content, or engage in other online activities without being tracked.
Download Files Safely & Anonymously
Sometimes our files get infected with malware while downloading. So, if you’re handling sensitive company information while working from home, you must connect to a VPN first. With ExtremeVPN, keep your IP address hidden and your connection encrypted, preventing third parties from tracking your online activity.

How Does a VPN Work?
A VPN redirects your device’s internet connection through the private server of your VPN rather than your ISP to ensure complete privacy and anonymity. As you connect to the internet, the VPN serves as a middleman, obscuring your IP address.
You automatically get connected to a VPN server in any country when installing your chosen VPN client’s app on your device.
Now, your data passes through a tunnel where it’s encrypted with VPN protocols making it impossible for third parties to decipher it.
Connect to different VPN servers for fast bandwidth, end-to-end encryption, and more.
What are VPN Protocols?
We are listing some best protocols that ExtremeVPN offer.
OpenVPN Most Widely Used Protocol
One of the most popular open-source encryption technologies is OpenVPN. It creates secure point-to-point or site-to-site connections using a proprietary security protocol with SSL/TLS for key exchange.
OpenVPN may use UDP or TCP tunnels to transmit data. This renders your web traffic indistinguishable from conventional HTTPS over SSL traffic, making it exceedingly difficult to identify and block.
