Does a VPN service yield adequate security online?

Recommended Posts

I'm truly fond of watching and streaming Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, Eurosport, Sky Go, Pluzz and a few other channels without buffering. I even access some of the most popular websites that are blocked in some nations like Facebook, Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, Skype, WhatsApp, Amazon Instant Videos, Pandora, etc. My VPN provider works pretty well with most of the network connected devices, PCs, Smart TV, and gaming consoles. But I'm yet to understand how they work. Can anyone please throw some light on these VPN services in details?

Hello @AtticusP and :welcome:

I've removed the name you used as you posted it twice now in different posts. That's obviously brand marketing spam, otherwise no need to make different posts about it.

Assuming you really wanted information please see below. Note that brand marketing is not allowed.

Haskell-powered cross-platform transport-layer distributed reverse / forward proxy & tunneling solution – currently available for all TCP protocols (RDP, VNC, HTTP(S), SSH, ...)
https://github.com/corsis/PortFusion

PortFusion is a minimalistic, cross-platform, transport-layer distributed reverse / forward proxy and tunneling solution for TCP released under GPLv3.

A single package that makes the most of each platform by tapping into their unique capabilities, combining this power with an intuitive interface, beautiful design and Haskell's excellent support for unprecedented levels of concurrency and parallelism.

It strives for the smallest source code size while delivering maximum throughput with near-zero overhead.

 

Thank you

Ron
