Internet use is increasing globally. According to Internet Live Stats, approximately 40% of the world’s population is now accessing the internet compared to 1% in 1995. Add to this the growing popularity of mobile devices that allow people to stay connected even on the go, and it’s no wonder why the internet is teeming with unscrupulous entities victimizing unsuspecting users.
This is where virtual private networks step in – to protect users from malware and data harvesters while surfing the web. For businesses, it lets colleagues share confidential files among themselves without fear of interception.
In the virtual private network (VPN) software space, OneVPN is a relatively new entrant but is showing considerable promise in terms of features, functionality, and customer responsiveness.
With the aim of providing users the privacy and content accessibility they crave to explore the internet freely without worrying about lurking cybercriminals at every corner, OneVPN carries features that address data protection, security, malware protection, ad blocking, and faster web TV streaming.
To set up OneVPN, navigate to the Get Started page on their website. For Windows users, you can either manually configure the software or download the executable file. If you’re not yet an advanced user, we recommend using the .exe file. You only need to run it, then, the installation wizard guides you through the setup process.For Mac and Linux users, the only available option currently offered is manual configuration. OneVPN can also be used on mobile and other devices, such as iPhone, Android, iPad, Apple TV, Boxee, PS3, Roku, Wii, Chromebook, and your internet router.
When you’re done installing, launch OneVPN and enter your access credentials in the dialog box that appears. Choose a security protocol and server location, and click on the blue on/off button to start using the software. You can change the security protocol and server location as you deem fit.
If you encounter any difficulties during the setup process, OneVPN’s 24/7 live chat support is available to help. Simply click on the Let’s Chat icon on the bottom right of their website. Based on experience, they respond almost immediately and stay with you until the software is up and running on your device.
OneVPN has servers situated in various locations around the world, including the U.S., U.,K., Canada, Australia, Germany, France, Sweden, Spain, Singapore, Hong Kong, Czech Republic, Turkey, and others. They serve to mask your actual location from prying eyes so that you can browse content restricted in your area, such as YouTube videos available in the U.S. but not in Asia.
Among other uses, this is a handy feature for marketers conducting competitor research.
OneVPN lets you choose from several security protocols (PPTP, L2TP, OpenVPN TCP, and OpenVPN UDP) to ensure the files you share over the network are protected, your communications are private, and that your bank and other financial details stay confidential.
Because OneVPN allows you to choose your server location at will, your IP address constantly changes, making it difficult for data snoopers to pinpoint your exact location and steal your personal information.
In the case of public Wi-Fi hotspots, while they help users stay connected and productive anytime, anywhere, they pose serious security risks. Because they’re available to anyone and everyone, your data and communication can easily be intercepted. OneVPN ensures your data stays safe through encryption technology even when you’re out in the open using public Wi-Fi.
With the internet come all sorts of malicious scripts, social engineering tactics (usually via email), and other fraudulent behavior to dupe unsuspecting users into divulging sensitive information. As such, security software such as anti-malware, anti-spyware, and anti-virus have ceased to become nice-to-haves. Instead, they’re now an absolute essential.
But with the organized way cybercriminals target their victims – big or small fish, they spare no one – having these security essentials may not be enough. Anti-malware software and VPN, when lumped together, provide a shield that encrypts your connection while scanning for malware threats attempting to steal your data.
Where other VPNs only provide connection encryption, OneVPN Anti-Malware is an embedded security feature that operates in the background to make all your devices private and secured.
Ad blocking is rife with controversy, with publishers insisting it’s unethical as it takes away from content creators the chance to make money off their efforts. But for most web users, ads don’t help with the browsing experience. Worse, some are even infused with malware.
If you’re just like the average internet user who’d rather not deal with obnoxious popups, banners, and other ad forms, OneVPN comes prebuilt with an ad blocker that blocks annoying ads from the source. It means you need not install a separate ad blocker to get rid of those pesky ads.
Network address translation (NAT), in a nutshell, is an IP address remapping method that allows multiple devices to connect to your router and access the internet using the same IP address provided by your internet service provider. The NAT firewall built into your router is your first line of defense against potentially malicious IP packets attempting to penetrate your network.
Using a VPN, however, bypasses the protection of this basic firewall as the encrypted data packets pass through the VPN tunnel between your computer and the VPN server. To remedy this downside, OneVPN carries a NAT firewall to ensure your devices have a firewall protecting them while encrypting your data at the same time.
There are various streaming services out there that let users watch the latest shows – if they’re domiciled in certain locales. OneVPN’s Web TV feature offers easy access to various shows around the world, literally breaking down geographic boundaries for TV show enthusiasts.
OneVPN can be used by individuals and businesses alike.
For a VPN service that offers integrated services to ensure all-around user protection, OneVPN’s pricing plans are among the most cost-effective in the industry. Their customer service team is highly responsive, and use of the software is simple and straightforward.
While a free trial is not yet available, they offer a seven-day money-back guarantee.
