What is SurfGuard? SurfGuard is specialized VPN or Virtual Private Network. The main purpose of SurfGuard is to ensure your online security and privacy. To do this, SurfGuard encrypts the traffic you transmit over the network, therefore keeping everything you do online completely anonymous.
How does it work? SurfGuard adds a new network interface which functions exactly as if you were working with a direct Internet connection. However, your IP address is now virtual, and all your traffic is encrypted across this network. SurfGuard enables a host internet connected device to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if they are an integral part of a private network, with all the functionality, security and management policies that private networks provide.
Does using SurfGuard slow down my internet connection? SurfGuard does NOT decrease the connection speed for any user. However, the conditions for your connection may vary due to the current workload on the selected SurfGuard server and the distance from your location to the selected SurfGuard server.
Can I increase the speed of my connection by using SurfGuard? This is possible as SurfGuard bypasses some of the throttles placed by ISPs.
