What is VPN?

What is a VPN?

VPN stands for “virtual private network” – a service that protects your internet connection and privacy online. It creates an encrypted tunnel for your data, masking your IP, increasing your security, and allowing you to safely connect to public Wi-Fi and remote locations worldwide.

The purpose of a VPN

Mask Your IP Address

Masking your IP address with our VPN service is like using a different personal address for your device on the internet. It's similar to wearing a mask to conceal your identity, making it difficult for others to track your online activity back to your device and your real IP address.

Secure Your Data

When you use a secure VPN connection to send your data, it becomes scrambled and unreadable to anyone who may be trying to snoop on your online activity, including ISPs, network admins, and government agencies. By using a VPN, you can create an additional layer of defense that can make it considerably more challenging for cyber criminals to access and exploit your data.

Device Security

As a VPN provider, we prioritize your device security. We utilize top-of-the-line military-grade security in combination with advanced 256-bit AES encryption to fortify your data and provide an extra layer of protection when using unsecured public Wi-Fi networks. This can significantly reduce your risk of falling victim to security breaches, giving you greater peace of mind as you browse the web.

Access Restricted Content

Some Wi-Fi networks and streaming providers restrict your access to streaming content based on your location and also reduce bandwidth. Heatena VPN lets you bypass network blocks and watch the content you want when you want. Recently streaming providers started banning VPN server IP addresses. So not all of our servers are guaranteed to work but our variety of servers gives you the best chance to access your desired content. Simply connect to one of our 3,300 endpoints in 60 different countries to change your virtual location and bypass network restrictions.

Minimize Your Digital Footprint

As you surf the web, you unknowingly leave behind digital traces of your every move. By using a VPN, you can protect your online privacy and minimize your digital footprint, which is crucial in today's era of data breaches and cyber threats. A VPN prevents websites from monitoring your browsing activity, giving you greater control over your personal information and overall digital security.

Save Money

By using a VPN to "spoof" your location and change your time zone, you may be able to access lower prices on flights, hotel rooms, and other products and services. This is because many companies and websites offer different prices based on the location and time zone of the user. Similarly, you might be able to find lower prices on hotel rooms and other travel-related services by connecting to a VPN server in a different location and time zone. This can be especially useful for people who are planning to travel to a different country and want to save money on their trip.
