PureVPN The Choice For VPN Power Users

in Security

pure-vpnI am a huge fan of Tunnelbear, probably the best simple, install and switch virtual private network (VPN) service available today.  It literally is a case of installing the software, deciding which country you want to divert your net activity through and switching it on. The downside is that you are at the mercy of the vagaries of the Internet and you will experience some severe degradation in speed and that might impact on your ability to stream Netflix, for example, depending on your original connection speed.

As you get further into VPN work you might want to get a service that is more “tweakable” and one of the best services available is PureVPN.  At first it looks a little daunting but there is an abundance of help available. Such is the power of PureVPN that I managed to squeeze an extra 15mb of download speed from my system over what I could get from Tunnelbear.  Pretty good going.

Multiple OS and Device Support

It doesn’t matter what operating system you are using, the odds are that PureVPN can handle it – and that goes for gaming consoles too! PureVPN self-manages more than 500 servers in 141 countries with 80,000 IP addresses.  It uses 256-bit encryption to protect your activity through email, instant messaging and general web browsing. Each and every PureVPN server supports all security protocols including OpenVPN, L2TP/IPSec, PPTP, SSTP, and IKEv2 to provide you with ultimate security, no matter which server you connect to. For the individual on the move, PureVPN provides five multi logins with one single account. So, whether it’s your laptop, tablet, mobile or PC, you can enjoy true freedom on every device.

Dedicated Pure VPN IP

The SmartDNS service by PureVPN successfully unblocks 230+ channels and lets you enjoy lightning-fast streaming experience and offers dedicated IP add-on for people who want complete control over their online reputation, security and privacy.  There is an Internet Kill Switch, a fail-safe button that maintains your privacy and anonymity and ensures that your ID is never exposed.  Bear in mind if you need to disconnect PureVPN to access something in your own country, for example the kill switch will stop access; it needs to be neutralised.

It took me about 45 minutes to get PureVPN set up on my desktop and Android smartphone and tablet and,  believe  me, if I can set up the service to work at its fastest and most secure, you can too.
