The iPhone people have done something remarkably clever over the years. Somehow they have made you feel that iPhone is completely secure. Just by not giving you freedom and open source, which is a bad thing not a positive one, the iPhone people have tricked you into thinking that iPhone is secure and no one can steal your data. Well, nothing could be further from truth.
Without proper security, iPhone users are as vulnerable to cyber-attacks as anyone. In fact a recent investigation by Nohasslemobilephones.com found that sever fiitness-tracking apps were using dodgy in-app payments to steal money from unaware iPhone and iPad users.
Internet privacy is not restricted to someone finding your nudes or sexting only. Any data that shows your habits, search history, browsing patterns taken without your consent is not only unethical but also illegal. But major corporations are doing it so no one bats an eye.
Then there is a case of governments and companies banning access to some content to certain people of certain areas. Chinese and infamous in imposing content controlling. That is why it is reported that almost 30% of Chinese use VPN services.
Here are five VPN apps that any iPhone will find useful.
ExpressVPN is one of the most famous VPN companies around. They have a power-packed VPN application that can form an impregnable layer of security around your internet activities. It used 256-bit encryption and other very advanced techniques to ensure your apple device remains safe and secure.
They have a 24 hour customer support center and a Mon-Fri helpline. So in case you are in a bit of a bother, experts are at hand to sort it out for you.
NordVPN is known as the most secure VPN of all for iPhone and iPad users. They use double encryption techniques. That means that they use two encryption layers on your data, as well as encryption on the data going out and coming in. This technique ensures that your data remains completely safe and even the company itself cannot access it.
The customer support is good and there is a detailed help section. Their website carries detailed tutorials and instructional videos. Best thing: NordVPN offers one month free trial.
3. Private Internet Access
Private Internet Access (PIA) is an affordable app for iPhone and iPad users set at $3.33 to $6.95 monthly. As you can see that is extremely reasonable. It has a speed extension called OpenVPN, PIA doesn’t do well on speed without this extension. But that is hardly a problem since OpenVPN takes a few seconds to set up.
With good pricing and decent security PIA is recommended for new VPN users or people who want to use it for light security.
IPVanish is a giant. It is suitable for pro users. There is stuff going on that a beginner would not simply understand such as automatic IP address cycling. You can download torrents, do whatever you like and still leave no trace of your digital footprint – it is like you are a ghost.
IPVanish has more than 41,000 IP addresses all across the world. There is a free trial period for one week as well. If you don’t like the app, you can cancel it and you won’t be charged.
PureVPN is an age old app, some time ago it used to be a website with a desktop software, now it is an app. It is very reliable and uses 256-bit AES, DDoS protection, and NAT firewire techniques to ensure the privacy of your data.
Pure VPN has such extensive setup that you can even make transactions of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin as well as use credit cards. They have a special section within the app for that.
