An Easy Way to Protect Your Privacy Online!

Get a VPN!

Privacy is a Human Right and you must protect it. When you connect to the Internet, corporations and even your internet service provider can spy you. If you want to protect yourself and not let any stranger see your personal information, you need a VPN.

internet-privacy

A VPN will secure your connection, no matter where you are. With a VPN whatever you do online is going to be transferred encrypted. That includes your internet searches, your personal & identifiable information you type into websites, your emails and private messages and the files you download or share. Yes, you also can use a VPN for FrostWire.

How does it work?

You have to sign up for a VPN service and obtain a username and password for authentication. You then download and install a very tiny piece of software or an app that, upon a sign in, lets you choose a location of where you want to connect to. Your device then connects to servers in that location and those servers then pass on the connection to wherever you wanted to go. Your destination website will see your connection as coming from the VPN servers and your identity will not be revealed. More here.

Does FrostWire work with VPN services?

FrostWire, both for Android and for Desktop, works seamlessly with most VPN services. This means that however you connect to the internet – with or without the VPN – FrostWire will still search and download without any adjustment in settings on your part.
