Frequently Asked Questions

How does a VPN work?

As soon as you connect to one of our SwitchVPN servers, your computer is assigned a new IP address. This npw P address is owned by us, not your Internet Service Provider. Then, all of your Internet traffic is encrypted and is tunneled to our VPN server. Once there, it is decrypted and allowed to travel to its intended destination. Your local ISP will only see a single encrypted data stream between you and our VPN server. This means that your Internet Service Provider can no longer monitor, log or control your Internet usage.
