SecureProxy - VPN.AC

SecureProxy for browsers

Our SecureProxy browser extension for Chrome and Firefox is an addition to our VPN service and provides with the ability to surf the web securely and privately without connecting to the "classic" VPN. It works like a browser proxy and all browsing traffic is encrypted through a secure tunnel.

Features

  • Strong encryption for all browsing activity using TLS (pure HTTPS traffic)
  • Stealth against Firewall/DPI: when inspected using DPI technologies, the connections using the SecureProxy don't trigger alerts like a classic VPN would usually do
  • There is no need to tunnel all your PC traffic through the VPN: you can have the browser tunneling the traffic through our servers and all other traffic sent via your regular ISP connection. You can call it "a VPN inside the browser"
  • Current locations available with the SecureProxy extension: USA (8 servers on West Coast optimized for Asian traffic and 4 on East Coast optimized for European traffic, 1 in Central US), Japan (6 servers optimized for Asian traffic), Hong Kong (3 servers), South Korea, Singapore (2 servers), India, Australia, Canada (Vancouver and Montreal), UK (3 servers), Ireland, Germany (2 servers), Austria, France, Hungary, Netherlands (2 servers), Finland, Norway, Czech Republic, Russia, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Lithuania, Poland, Mexico, Denmark, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Romania and South Africa.

Fast and reliable

  • All SecureProxy servers are carefully chosen with hosting providers that have very reliable, fast connections and excellent peering
  • Encryption overhead is smaller than OpenVPN's, it is less CPU intensive, and due to design it can be much faster than OpenVPN

Easy to use, works out of the box

  • There are no advanced configuration parameters, no drivers to install, no major changes in network configuration. All you need is to install the extension, add your VPN credentials and select a server location to connect.
  • It is not OS-dependent: the same extension works with Google Chrome and Firefox for Windows, Mac and Linux

Privacy considerations

Browser tunneling is vulnerable to IP-leaking and we highly recommend to block Flash, WebRTC and Java to reduce the risk of exposing your real IP while using the browser. The risk is much greater when you are not connected to a VPN. Check our tutorial on how to improve your privacy with a few extensions. Blocking Flash is the first thing to do if you don't want your real IP to leak easily.
