With a VPN (virtual private network), you can access a local network or your private network when travelling. Software is required for this, which is installed on the computer, but which also communicates with the network router.
What is a VPN?
How does a VPN work?
A VPN is a self-contained sub-network. The users of the IP network are thus spatially separated from each other and connect to the server through the VPN protocol. A tunnel is created. Once the encoding is constructed, users are assigned a new IP. Thanks to the encoded connection with the Internet, computers outside the VPN network can no longer read or change communications.
Can I use SpyOFF instead of my Internet connection?
No, you require an existing Internet connection to be able to use our VPN service.
What is the difference between a proxy and a VPN?
A proxy is a communication interface organised online that protects your activities in the Internet browser. With the SpyOFF VPN, you can additionally also protect the browser.
Will the VPN slow down my system or my Internet connection?
No. You will not usually notice any difference in speed.
Can I increase the speed of my connection using a VPN?
Differences in speed never usually occur. However, some users occasionally report that the slow-down of speed by your Internet provider can be avoided.
Can I try out SpyOFF before buying?

Can I access my account from different devices?
Yes, you can use SpyOFF on various devices at the same time. Simply install the app for Windows, Mac, iOS or Android, activate the connection, and go!
Does SpyOFF also protect other products, such as e-mail and FTP?
As soon as you are connected to our VPN server, a virtual network interface is used, which protects all of your programs that access the Internet.
Do I have to re-configure my account as soon as I change my location?
This isn’t necessary. SpyOFF will always work, wherever you may travel. However, you can get better performance when you connect to a closer server.
How can I make sure, that I've been successfully connected to a SpyOFF-VPN-Server?
If you establish a connection via one of our apps, the application shows you with the word “connected” and a green symbol that you’ve connected successfully. Also you can find out with a website like “https://www.whatismyip.com/” which IP address you’re using right now.
Why do you charge $1 of my credit card during my trial phase?
The $1 is no charge but a authorization hold. We have to do this to ensure that your credit or debit card is valid. You will not have any permanent charges associated with this hold. The hold should be gone from your account within 48 to 72 hours, depending on your bank. Be sure we will never make any additional charges without your authorization.
