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.

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.

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.
