- 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), Singapore (2 servers), India, Australia, Canada (Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal), UK (3 servers), Ireland, Germany (2 servers), Austria, France, Hungary, Netherlands (2 servers), Finland, Norway, Czechia, Russia, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Lithuania, Poland, Mexico, Denmark, Belgium, Spain, Portugal and Romania.
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
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.
