When you connect to a VPN, you can browse the internet with privacy and security. Your data is encrypted so it can’t be intercepted by anyone—including your ISP (internet service provider). And your IP address is hidden so websites can’t track you.
VPNs are useful for people who want to:
Hide their browsing activity from their ISP
Bypass government censorship of the internet
Access geo-blocked websites and content
All of these activities are legal, but some countries block certain sites or services. A VPN lets you get around those restrictions by routing your traffic through another country where those restrictions don’t apply.
Some people also use VPNs to commit illegal activities such as accessing child pornography or launching denial-of-service attacks. We do not condone such use of VPNs. This guide is for people who want to use VPNs for legitimate purposes only.
The most important thing to know about VPNs is that they encrypt your traffic so that no one can see what you’re doing online. This includes your ISP, the government, employers, and anyone else who might be snooping on your activity.
There are many different types of VPNs out there, but they all have the same basic principle: they make it harder for people to track you online by routing your traffic through an encrypted tunnel.
Some common features of VPNs include:
Encryption: This is the most important feature of a VPN. All data that passes through a VPN is encrypted so that it cannot be read by prying eyes.
Anonymity: A good VPN will mask your IP address so that you appear to be located in another country or even in another city. This makes it much harder for people to track your online activity.
Speed: Some VPNs can slow down your internet connection because of the extra security measures they take, but the best ones should not have a significant impact on your speed.
There are many reasons why you might want to use a VPN with your OnePlus phone. Perhaps you’re concerned about online privacy or security. Maybe you want to access geo-locked content like Netflix or BBC iPlayer. Or maybe you just want to improve your internet speeds by connecting to a server in a different country. Whatever the reason, using a VPN with OnePlus is easy and straightforward.
