How to encrypt internet Traffic Easily

VPN is the best and quick solution for this purpose, it will encrypt the whole internet just like that. I have tried NordVPN with the 30-day refund policy, check it out.

Virtual Private Network abbreviated as VPN is a private network and acts as a man-in-middle between computing devices and the internet. These remote computing devices act as if they are part of that private network. VPNs can provide security and traffic management to monitor internet encryption.

“A VPN connection is established by a virtual end-to-end connection (sometimes called an encrypted tunnel) through the use of virtual tunnel protocols, traffic encryption, and dedicated connections to the remote server.”

Some companies set up VPNs to allow employees to access securely their corporate intranet structure, or to connect to geographically separated offices. Internet users can use VPNs to secure their wireless financial transactions, to protect personal identity and location, and/or to bypass geo-restrictions and censorship.

Safe Yourself From Fake & Free VPNs

Free VPN service providers are commonly available on the internet. They do provide internet encryption. But their set back is that they only provide limited bandwidth and speed monthly which quickly burns out if you like downloading, use YouTube more often or stream your favorite channels. Also, they provide fewer servers to connected to which makes them populated, as majority people connect to those servers.

“Some free VPN service providers breach their users’ privacy rights by logging their data usage and reveal it to agencies or make money by selling the user’s unused bandwidth to others.”

Paid VPN service providers, on the other hand, are bound by their policies. For the cost of few pounds, they provide access to hundreds of remote servers located worldwide encrypt internet traffic and hide your personal IP address which makes it harder for others to track you.

5 thoughts on “How To Encrypt Internet Traffic & connection 2020”

  1. I agree with Finn Joe and would also add, that it might also depend on the provider. For example, free VPNs are not reliable and secure at all. It’s better to use someone like Express or Nord, as they have military-grade encryption, they are unhackable and well praised. I personally use NordVPN as it’s cheaper than Express.

    • Not so fast @Zaid! Nord was just hacked recently and ALL customer data stolen! People hack into both Government & Military computer systems all the time. And if it’s a Military creation like Tor, you’re a fool if you don’t think both the Military & the Government can get into it… They built it! When it comes down to it, unless you’re on a private server, you’re not 100% safe anywhere. That being said, VPN’s, Proxies, Tor, & some “common” sense about wiping history & blocking ads/trackers will definitely do drastically reduce the odds of it happening to you.
      Good, informative article. Thank you

      • I am 100% agreed with you, each and every provider out there, still your privacy in third party vendors. NordVPN server was hacked, but there isn’t a sign of leaked data or something, but Yeah still it’s not gonna justify Nord. combination of using vpn + tor + or any other script browsing and habits of browsing can lower the change to almost 0 to leave your footprints behind.

  2. Vpn do not secure your data from your isp or the feds at all. There is no such thing as a no data VPN provider. This is false info, a quick google search will point out exactly why. But other than that nice ad

    • I’m 100% confident that your information is wrong, VPN is the great tool to hide your stuff, use TOR + VPN is the strongest wall against Feds or other surveillance agencies. 2nd. VPN does secure your data from your ISP if you are using VPN. I am not talking about some proxy and stuff. ISP can see your traffic but never find out that was that… because of encryption. get it?
