What’s VPN can be trusted?


Hi, I need to use a VPN and I’ve been looking into different providers, but there’s one thing I’m worried about. Can’t a VPN provider just look at my traffic all they want and see what I’m doing? Don’t I just have to trust them not to spy on me? If that’s true, how do I pick one I can trust, when they can all see what I’m doing?

The discussion about the security of VPN

If security is all you’re concerned with, and you have a VPN provided to you by your school or company, you’re already set. In fact, almost any VPN will cover you from the security angle, because you’re only really concerned about protecting your activity from prying eyes, presumably on the same network that you’re on—like a hotel, coffee shop, or airport’s free Wi-Fi.

About the Encryption & Decryption and Key Management technology, VPN is use the MPPE and IPSec methods to encrypt data; and adopt the method of public and private key for Key Management. MPPE can make terminal for secure communication from anywhere around the world, and MPPE Encryption also can ensure the security of data transmission. The above technologies are enforced to remote VPN server. VPN connection can realize double data encryption, and make the network data transmission more secure. You can also use the VPN connect to the server to physical separation of highly sensitive data server physically separated.
