A VPN is a virtual private network that helps achieve anonymity and privacy online by rerouting and encrypting your internet traffic. VPNs bounces- your internet activity across multiple IP addresses so that your location cannot be traced. Even on public Wi-Fi.
What can I do with a VPN?
Can't find a movie in your local Netflix library? Is twitter banned in your country?
VPNs are helpful and legal workarounds to content restrictions. Just download a VPN service, choose a country IP address to connect to and begin watching whatever you'd like.
That's not all.
VPNs ensure data confidentiality. They protects you against online threats such as hacking, identity theft, and internet service providers tracking and selling your internet data to advertisers.
How is Mysterium VPN different from other VPN providers?
In the case of Mysterium, we reroute your internet activity, not through servers, but nodes offered up by our community members.
Users with unused network traffic can sell their internet to the Mysterium marketplace as a node. Mysterium VPN users can then purchase these nodes to access the internet safely, privately and anonymously.
Traditional VPNs run on centralized infrastructure, which means one point of failure. At Mysterium, we're decentralized; there is no central point of control or anywhere to store your logs. As a result, we can’t track or keep logs of your traffic, even if we wanted to.
