Ensure Privacy and Security
Without a VPN, your IP address, location, browsing activity and online communications are at risk. A VPN app encrypts your Internet connection to secure it when using public Wi-Fi and other networks. Protect your online privacy from hackers, snoops and governmental surveillance whether you're browsing the Internet at home or on the go.

Bypass Censorship and Restrictions
VyprVPN allows you to change your IP address and appear local to any of our 70+ worldwide server locations. This is invaluable when travelling in countries that impose Internet censorship, as well as in schools or workplaces that impart restrictions. Buy a VPN to bypass blocked websites and content and maintain access to an unrestricted Internet.

Improve Streaming Access and Speed
When streaming content without a fast VPN, your ISP and streaming service can monitor your activity and throttle your Internet connection. When using a VPN, your provider sees only encrypted traffic and is unable to slow you down based on what you're doing. Bypass location-based blocks and access global media, as well as increase privacy while streaming.
