Why anonymous? I don’t have anything to hide.

If you surf online anonymously your data in transit over the internet is not seen and therefore is not available for hackers and criminals to steal and commit ID fraud. The only way to completely protect your data in transit over the internet is to encrypt it. Whatever AntiVirus companies are telling you about protecting your data on the Internet, is simply untrue. Once online, AV has no control over your data. The only means of protection for your internet traffic is military-grade encryption of VPN4ALL.

Without VPN4ALL internet protection, standard standalone firewalls and antivirus are ineffective as witnessed by millions of ID fraud victims every year. If unencrypted, data online is completely vulnerable to theft and manipulation. But ID theft cannot take place if your data cannot be tampered with. VPN4ALL's military grade encryption and encapsulation means just that - your personal data will not be tampered with when in transit over the internet.

Today, commercial companies, such as search engines, advertisement agencies, and even government authorities have an opportunity to monitor and evaluate what you do on the web. Some authorities have the right to request information about your personality from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Anonymity makes sure that your internet activities cannot be traced back to you or hacked because no one knows that the data traveling over the Internet is yours. So to intercept it is useless.

VPN4ALL provides its customers with encryption and all-in-one protection through a large number of highly secure VPN servers in different geographical locations on different continents. All your internet traffic is protected by military-grade encryption so that no traces of your personally-identifiable information appear anywhere on the Internet.
