They can insert tracking headers into all our customers’ traffic.The apps are installed not only to deliver advertisements, but also can track you when browsing. Though you may delete the cookies, those apps can resurrect them. In the second place, they can inject ads into your browser when snooping through your traffic.

What is a VPN?

VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. It creates an encrypted and secure connection between you and the website you are visiting. The VPN server plays the role of a middleman between you and the website that you are visiting. Given that the network traffic between you and websites is encrypted like a tunnel, the ISP will have no idea of your traffic emerges without signs of who you are or where you’re connecting from. The VPN server provides new IPs to replace your real IP. Having the new IPs from a VPN server, you have a new ID online which is not related to your real name. You can be a US, UK, Chinese, Japanese or any other countries’ Internet users. They don’t know your real name according to the IP address because this one is not related to your real identity. Your Internet privacy is highly protected. The VPN also helps you access website and services blocked by firewall and other restriction. You can use the same computer while browsing as a different user online. You stay anonymous from the ISP. The ISP doesn’t know who you really are and what you are doing online.

Important things you need to keep in mind about a VPN service

How VPN works while you are trying to access a website?
In order to let you know the functions of VPN, let’s talk about how it works in detail. You run VPN and click on link you want to visit. The browser sends encrypted your account & password and request to your VPN service first. Then, VPN service decrypts the communication and sends it to the targeted website. After the website receives data, it generates session cookie and send it to your VPN service. VPN encrypts the session data it received and then sends it back to your device. In this way, you can view the website you like after your browser received the session cookie. You may think that the process is too complicated and it will take a long time before you can access the targeted website. In fact, everything we mentioned above happens at an amazing and unbelievable speed. In the blink of an eye your request will be sent and everything will respond. Your Internet connection is secure, encrypted and extremely fast with VPN service.

Problems that you may meet while using VPN service
Problem 1: I can connection VPN service via 4G mobile data on my phone, but I can’t connect it via WiFi hotspot? I saw WIFi signal bar there while it still used my mobile data.
The problem may be that WiFi hotspot sets limits on VPN connection. NAT of VPN, namely PPTP/L2TP has been limited. WiFi hotspot refuses to transfer your data to the VPN service.
Problem 2: I failed to visit some regular websites after I turned off VPN. I could access those websites before I first used VPN. I am a Chinese user and I use VPN service to access Dropbox, Vimeo, Facebook, Twitter and watch Youtube. Now, I can’t visit my favorite Chinese websites in a normal way. I have to run VPN so that I can access them.
Firstly, there may be something wrong with your routing tables. Check your default route and VPN gateway.
Secondly, your DNS may have been hijacked. Check your DNS and scan your computer for malicious programs
Thirdly, it may be the mechanism network problem or Internet proxy. Check your Internet settings.
Fourthly, it may be caused by non-normal exit. Next time, remember quit it in a normal way.
Problem 3: I can’t access local area network after I connect to VPN.
It may be caused by IP address conflict. Check your network line and correct the settings. Find your original gateway address via command.
Problems 4: Why I have blue screen after I run VPN?
Probably, your drive is not compatible with the VPN service you use. Besides, some anti-virus programs, game protection drive and bank security controls will bring blue screen when you use VPN.
