Opening a Website

Before the initial question "what is VPN?" can be answered, it needs to be clarified how the Internet works. When surfing the world wide web, the data runs through a lot of "hands". Each of these hands is a potential risk for your privacy. The steps neccessary, whether calling a website, watching YouTube videos, or downloading a file works basically the same. In order to explain how the Internet works, we use the example of visiting a website.

Hereby the following happens:

  1. Your computer needs an IP address (eg 192.168.1.0) to establish a connection. Because your computer can not handle a URL (such as www.google.com), it asks a Domain Name System (DNS) server for the correct IP address. For each URL the associated IP address is stored on a DNS Server. Just like in a telephone book, where the phone number for each name is stored.
  2. Your computer tries to connect to the desired IP address. To access the Internet, your computer connects to the infrastructure of your Internet service provider (for example Comcast, AT & T or Verizon).
  3. Your Internet service provider connects you to the web server you want to reach.

Risks of Unencrypted Communication

If you are not protected by a VPN while surfing, the provider of your DNS server first sees which address you would like to call. Of course, the DNS provider can then store this address together with your (unique and therefore assignable) IP address and thus create "motion profiles" of yours. To prevent this, SpyOFF uses its own DNS server. The SpyOFF DNS Server works completely log-free for maximum security.

After your computer has received the DNS response, it connects to the web server. Along the way, your request and the web server's response go through the infrastructure of your ISP. This Internet Service Provider (eg Comcast) can then analyze and save not only your request but also the content of the website you are visiting.

Lastly, the web server you want to access will store your IP address. He has to, to be able to send a reply to your computer. But even the operators of some websites create profiles of you, for example, to send advertising to you. Nobody wants someone constantly looking "over his shoulder" while surfing. Therefore, neither the DNS server nor your ISP nor the provider of the website visited should know your true identity.
Now, the basic operation of the Internet is clear. But what does has to do with using of a VPN?

How does VPN work?

Connection secured by SpyOFF VPN

The VPN or "Virtual Private Network" technology establishes an encrypted connection between different endpoints. These may include smartphones, computers, servers, routers, refrigerators, or any other Internet-enabled device. This connection is more or less secure depending on the protocol used. Since the connection between the devices is encrypted and nobody can access it from outside, this is called a "virtual private network" within a public network. To learn more about the encryption and security of different protocols, we have compiled information under: VPN protocols

Your computer encrypts your data before sending. The data is sent encrypted to your destination. Your target decrypts the data, creates a response, and encrypts the response before sending it back to you. Whether you watch YouTube videos, play games or do online banking. Communication in the virtual private network is protected via an encrypted connection. How can this technology help you to strengthen your cybersecurity and privacy? Let's look at this together in detail:
