Internet freedom, privacy, and online security are what every web user wants to have. Nowadays we have a lot of additional methods to reach this goal, and using virtual private networks (VPNs) is one of the most popular ways.
More and more people in South Africa choose VPN as the best solution to protect personal information, encrypt online activity, and bypass geo-limitation.

How do VPNs in South Africa work?

VPN creates an encrypted tunnel for all traffic between your device and the Internet. How does it work? Imagine that you search for something with a turned-on VPN. Requests from your device go to the website through the VPN server. In this case, the ISP can't identify the sender, and the website can't track where the traffic actually comes from. The website’s answer passes back to you through an encrypted tunnel too.

Does South African VPN log my online activity?

Trustworthy VPNs do not track or collect any personal data of their customers. To make sure the VPN you choose doesn't do this, carefully read terms and conditions especially when you want to install a free VPN.

Is it safe to use a free South African VPN?

Usually, it is kept quiet, but free VPNs providers track and sell personal data to cover costs. VPN maintenance is worth money for companies and the product can't be absolutely free. Normally, VPN companies have a free version of their VPN but its functionality is limited compared to a premium version.

What does IP address mean for my online privacy?

No matter if you browse the Internet from a smartphone, laptop, or smart TV, the ISP assigns every device an IP address. This is a unique string of numbers that shows your geographical location and makes it easy to identify you. VPN hides your IP address behind the IP address of the VPN server you are connected to and makes it hard to detect you.

Is it legal to use VPN in South Africa?

VPNs have legal status in South Africa. There are no restrictions in using a VPN for online activities that do not break the laws.

Does VPN slow down connection speed?

Top VPN services have a lot of high-speed servers worldwide. This doesn’t only mean the possibility to choose a geographical location but also guarantees that the difference in the Internet speed will be unnoticeable. It sounds incredible but a VPN can even speed up your connection if your ISP artificially limits the bandwidth.

How to bypass geo-restrictions with South African VPN?

Geo-limitation is used by different companies to block access to websites and services from abroad. You risk facing it when trying to read the news or connect to video streaming services to watch your favorite movies.
Also, remote workers have to use VPN to get access to servers in South Africa from abroad. VPN helps to change the current IP address to the required one.

How do I stay safe using public Wi-Fi?

The weak security of public Wi-Fi hotspots makes them easy prey for hackers. Using a VPN helps to avoid the risks associated with the loss of personal data, passwords, correspondence, and even photos. If you don’t want to put your individual data at risk every time you connect to the public network, turn on a VPN.

FAQ

Shield yourself from snoopers & hackers on public Wi-Fi networks from accessing your files (such as messages and other private information)
Stream and download anything securely, anonymously, and with no limits
