VyprVPN – Goldenfrog review

Many users are still unaware of the fact that their Internet Service Provider (ISP) can monitor their online communications and keep track of the websites that they visit. Furthermore, since internet is a public network, it can be accessed by anyone, meaning that apart from your ISP,  your data could potentially be exposed to other users (people that hack your connection), large companies and of course, governmental organizations. Luckily, there is a way to protect your privacy online and that is, using a VPN. A VPN is a Virtual Private Network that creates a secure, private connection within internet, allowing you to access all the websites and applications that you normally use but without being monitored or controlled by third parties. When you use a VPN, all your data is encrypted, which means that not even your ISP will be able to see what you do online. There is a wide offer of companies that offer VPN services and one of your options is VyprVPN, a product from long established company Golden Frog. The team behind Golden Frog has an extensive experience in internet services and they created and manage every aspect of VyprVPN to offer their customers a secure, high technology VPN solution.
