Top 7 Features Important for Personal VPN Services

Not all VPNs are created equal!

Want a secure, private way to surf the Internet freely from anywhere and at anytime? Personal Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) offer a way to do just that. By establishing a secure path for your data communications across the Internet (which is a very public network), VPNs are a cost-effective alternative to surfing the web, while assuring privacy, security and freedom. VPNs are not just used by businesses, but by everyday users like you and me. So if you are traveling overseas and want to reach a website based at home, or just browsing the net from your favorite coffee shop - with VPN access you can seucrely connect to the Internet and browse sites feely. VPNs allow you to safely check your email or update your social media page or even purchase something online with your credit card - and ensure that your private information stays that way.

But not all VPN services are created equally! It's important to take a look at a few key areas before choosing your provider and entrusting your private information to just any service.

Some things to consider are:

1. Which geographical areas can you connect from? Do you have a choice of VPN server locations to access?

2. Can you access websites in your native language from anywhere in the world?

3. Is your VPN service accessible on the devices you use? Does it work on your laptop, smartphone, iPad and more to provide you a secure connection while on public cellular or Wi-Fi networks?

4. How fast is your connection? Keep in mind that turning on a VPN does NOT have to slow you down - there are VPNs that allow you to surf the Internet quickly.

5. Is your connection as secure as it should be? Not all VPN protocols are created equal, and yours could be out-dated.

6. Can you surf the web freely without content restrictions? Does your hosted solution or enterprise network hinder you from getting access to information?

7. Does the VPN provider own and manage their servers? A lot of VPN providers opt for a hosted solution, which limits their ability to manage their network, optimize VPN connections or minimize hardware failures.

And lastly service - is there going to be someone to help you when you NEED it? 24x7x365 support from knowledgeable staff is key.

Golden Frog's VyprVPN service was designed with all of these essentials in mind.
