Why PPTP VPN can secure my internet connection?
Once users connect to UK VPN service, the computer or network device is assigned with new VPN IP address and new Google DNS servers. Since then all Internet traffic is encrypted with 128 bits key and is tunneled to VPN network. From VPN server side, the traiffc is decrypted and forwarded to its final destination. Users’ local ISP side can only monitor the encrypted data stream between computer and VPN server. They can’t sniffer, log or control your Internet usage because of the strong encryption and by this you can secure your public WiFi internet access and at the same time bypass local ISP filters on some popular websites.
