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. Of course, you still need to make sure that your VPN provider isn’t just sniffing your traffic themselves and making themselves the security issue, but we’ll get to that in a moment.
VPN mainly adopts 4 technologies to ensure the safety of the data communication: Tunneling, Encryption & Decryption, Key Management and Authentication. About the Authentication technology, VPN is the use of the PPP method for user authentication. These validation methods include: PAP, CHAP, SPAP, MS-CHAP and EAP. 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.

Hey, I feel my LG phone is hacked while I was browsing on the internet and doing some online shopping. I am afraid my phone number, personal information, and Facebook have been hacked by someone. Recently, some strange ransom message is sent into my phone and my friends on Facebook said I once asked them some money, my Google email sent some spam or porn contents to my contacts, but I didn’t do anything. I guess someone should take my personal information by hacking my network, as my phone has not lost or stolen before, and it is always with me. But I did using my phone to do email over an open-wifi at coffee bar. Is it the culprit bringing hacker? Is it Android VPN useful to protect my personal information and prevent such problem happening?

It’s more actually convenient to use android and also more functions on android device are improved. So we usually don’t care about what we perform online over public internet or free Wifi. As a matter of factor, open Wi-Fi hotspots at coffee bars, restaurants, hotels, supermarkets, airports, and other public places are opportunities for hackers to steal information and more. Everywhere, from coffee shop or airport Wi-Fi to the internet provided by convention centers and other public facilities, there’s an IT department in the background that absolutely can examine your unencrypted internet traffic. To further illustrate, when you stay in a hotel and use their network and the hotel will be you Internet Service Provider. They offer the connectivity, routers, and other equipment which enable you to connect with the internet. So actually you’re using the network owned and controlled by the hotel, and they have the right to monitor its usage. Also like your own traditional ISP, they have the ability to supervise any and all traffic on the network. So if you don’t take appropriate precautions, some technical savvy guys will be able to monitor the websites you’re browsing. They even could potentially see your login information and password of email, Facebook, online banking account, or credit card. Your important personal data and privacy can be exposed a lot.

What is the Best VPN for China? I am now encountering an internet problem! Our sales team now is negotiating with our business partner, and I want to send gmail about trading details to my boss in America, but it’s weird that Gmail can’t open here in China, also Facebook. It’s very hard for me to visit some websites. Is there some problem with my MacBook? I’m now using my iPhone. Ii hope you can help me fix this issue soon. I urgently need to send email to boss.
Why can’t you access Google, Gmail, FaceBook, Instragram, YouTube or Twitter etc. from China?
Every country has a department to rule its national internet infrastructure. The quality of the infrastructure is an important factor in determining connection speed. Browsing and downloading contents from the country you’re in will be relatively fast. However, if you want to access servers abroad, there will be much difference. For different reasons, some websites also are blocked in some countries. It’s reported that to preserve China’s “cyberspace sovereignty”, Chinese government creates and operates its filtering system dubbed the Great Firewall (GFW) to censor its Internet. And every year, this GFW system keeps upgrading. This sophisticated net censorship system both limits the places people can go online and what they can search for and discuss. The GFW system severely restricts access to certain websites, blocks the Tor anonymity network and all public relays, prevents news and social-media websites like Bloomberg News, the New York Times, Twitter, Instragram and Facebook and free hosting services owned by foreigner. As a result, many foreign websites and service are severely hindered. It’s reported that more than 2,600 websites are blocked in China. It’s actually very inconvenient for Chinese people and people travelling to China to connect overseas websites.
