What else does a personal VPN hotspot
When you connect through a secure VPN, your IP
address becomes the one of the trusted server that you are connected to.
When you surf, the web site owner does not
know who you are and cannot collect information on you based on your
IP address. With the gathering of huge amounts of data in recent
years via IP address, it is becoming easier and easier to
actually identify you based on your address.
Do you really want
every web site you visit to know your name and address? This ability
is mushrooming. Where it can't be done reliably today, the ability
will be there in a few years. However, the
data collected today lasts forever, in databases around the globe.
Many places restrict access to where you
can surf. By connecting through a personal hotspot shield, you are able to
surf to any web site since all the requests are outside the control of the local network owner. Many people live in foreign countries that limit their internet and
IP phone access. A Personal VPN hotspot shield will also get around these limitations.
