SlickVPN: TorrentFreak Provider Who Cares About Anonymity
Serious About Anonymity
TorrentFreak.com has twice listed SlickVPN as a "VPN Service That Takes Your Anonymity Seriously." You can rely on our services to ensure your online activity includes robust security measures to keep your activity safe and a strong network to ensure anonymous browsing and streaming.
Additional Security via SlickVPN HYDRA
Our HYDRA Feature adds an extra layer of security other providers do not offer. This extra hop over our internal network completely disconnects your traffic to the outside world from the connection you're making to our gateways.
These days, it's important not to overlook one's personal, online security. SlickVPN accounts provide enhanced security by establishing a private connection between your computer and our servers. This ensures that when you browse the web you're doing so with an added layer of security. You should also work with a firewall program as well as an anti-virus program.
Added Firewall Security
A VPN account from SlickVPN can even work to fight off a direct attack on your computer. How, you ask? Many attacks are directed at your computer's IP address. A VPN account hides your computer's real IP address, and shows another IP address instead. The false IP address is protected by advanced hardware and engineers working to ensure that any attacks on the targeted IP address are thwarted.
Browse the Web Anonymously
With a SlickVPN account, you can browse the web anonymously so that nobody can see your real IP address. An IP address may be tracked when filling out an online form, purchasing something online, or by websites and search engines. Sometimes hackers with ill intent track them. Instead of your real IP address, an anonymous IP address is displayed.
Some services allow website owners or others to track where visitors to their website are from and allows them to see their IP address. SlickVPN makes your online presence anonymous.
Perfect for Travel
If you've ever tried to access the internet overseas, you know that certain countries put restrictions on what users can and cannot access. Some ecommerce transactions may be viewed as suspicious by a credit card company, which requires an annoying phone call to resolve the problem. SlickVPN allows you to access any website that you'd like without these worries.
Wi-Fi Hotspot Security
Most people will use a Wi-Fi hotspot at some point. Some use them every day, others use them a few times a week, and others might use them once or twice a month. They are common at airports, hotels, coffee shops, restaurants, and other locations. But, unfortunately, a public network can be laden with security risks as hackers attempt to steal passwords or usernames from others who are using the network. SlickVPN hides your activity so that you can surf the web anonymously.
When you use Skype and certain other programs, your rate is determined by the location of your IP address and the person you are calling. If you are in the U.S. and call another person in the U.S. the rate is lower because it is a domestic call. But if you are in the U.S. and call somebody in another country, the rate could be higher. SlickVPN allows your IP address to appear as if it were in any number of countries so you can get a better rate.
Many governments around the world censor the Internet to some degree. Americans who are living in other countries may grow frustrated with this censorship that limits their access to certain websites. While certain sites can be abhorrent, governments may block other sites that are much more general, including YouTube.com or Facebook.com. SlickVPN allows a way around government censorship to access these and any other website.
