There are plenty of tools you can use to protect and secure your online surfing, with varying levels of protection it can offer you.
If you are looking to secure your Internet connection, then by far one of the best ways to do so is by using a VPN (Virtual Private Network). If you are questioning “Is a VPN connection secure?” then yes.
However, the VPN service you choose is also important in keeping your data safe, as you are routing your Internet through your VPN provider and trusting that they will handle your data discreetly. Not all VPN providers have the best interests at heart.
The purpose of a VPN is in order that your IP address stays hidden and that your Internet connection is encrypted. In the event a hacker manages to hack the connection, they may be able to obtain it but not decipher it. Rightfully, your encrypted VPN connection should not be able to be traced back to you, and only back to your VPN server.
Nonetheless, determining if a VPN connection is secure depends on a couple basic factors, although they go beyond the ones mentioned in this article. They include:-
You are entrusting your VPN service to be concerned with your data and be vigilant in their high-encryption grades. This way it would be harder for a hacker to infiltrate your data. BolehVPN has a VPN infrastructure using Perfect Forward Secrecy and employs the latest hashing algorithm of SHA-2, a 256 bit AES military grade encryption (one of the most secure encryption algorithms around), and a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) build with a keysize of 4096 bits to effectively secure your network from any attempts of intrusion.
To avoid further detection of VPN connectivity, another layer of obfuscation technology is available to mask your vpn traffic protocols and hide detection of VPN usage from network monitoring devices.
There is no point to be trusting a VPN with your data if they are keeping it just to log it. That is why it is vital that your VPN has a strict no-logs policy when it comes to your information to that there is no way for them to be handing your details to any authority or third-party data brokers to be tracked.
