About VPN
  • What is a VPN?
    VPN stands for "Virtual Private Network" and the name really speaks for itself. 

    Let's break it down:

    - "Network" - means several computers are interconnected. 
    - "Virtual" - means they are not literally connected to each other, but use an existing network - Internet, to transfer data. 
    - "Private" - means the network can’t be accessed by non-registered users and the connection - between you and the server can be hidden even from the network members.
  • How does Faceless.me VPN work?
    Most people connect to the internet "directly" - this means that any website that you open in your web browser knows your IP address and will recognize you next time you pay them a visit. 

    Actually there's someone else who knows both your IP and all the websites you visit - your ISP (Internet Service Provider). ISP is guilty for these quotes around the word "directly" because it stands right between you and the internet and tracks everything you do.

    Once Faceless.Me is running on your PC one more player appears in the chain "You - ISP - Internet". 
    Now it's "You - ISP - Faceless.Me - Internet". 

    What it means for you?

    Your Internet will work exactly the same way it used to work. (Actually even better, since our servers have a high-speed connection to the most popular websites and online services.)

    But now your ISP can't see the websites you visit. What it sees now is that you exchange some encrypted data with Faceless.Me servers, that's it.

    On the other side, websites that you visit will no longer know it's you. They will only see that someone is using Faceless.Me servers to download web pages and there's no way to learn who's behind that.

    You needed absolute privacy and security? You got it!

    How is it different from an ordinary proxy server?

    The websites you visit will see your proxy server instead of your actual IP address. But your ISP will still have logs of everything you do online, because proxy servers don’t encrypt your data.
  • Why should I use Faceless.me VPN?
    Well, to answer this question we've dedicated a special page with the benefits of using Faceless.Me.

    But to cut a long story short, here's the recap:

    - No one knows what you do online. Neither your ISP, nor the Government or any other authorities;
    - You can watch any "region restricted" content because Faceless.Me has servers in different countries;
    - You can access any website even if they have banned you. It's just they no longer know it's You;
    - You can download what you want and not be afraid of being caught;
    - You can safely browse the web using public Wi-Fi's and not be afraid of being hijacked;
    - You can make payments online and fill in passwords knowing that no one is able to steal your personal data.
  • Who typically uses Faceless.me VPN?
    - People who want some privacy in their lives. No one wants to get a call from FBI just because he has watched some "inappropriate" video on Youtube;
    - People who have some financial activity online. Not every website will use a secure connection while requesting your credit card details. With Faceless.Me any connection is secure by default.
    - People that deal with "sensitive data". If you're sending some private documents by email or making a private call via Skype, with Faceless.Me you can be sure it won't get out;
    - People who travel a lot and want to be able to access their favorite sites and watch TV shows that are only being streamed in their country. Faceless.Me makes it possible;
    - People that frequently use public Wi-Fi spots, where any kid with a hacker script can break into your PC and steal your data. With Faceless.Me all your data is encrypted, so there’s no way to break in.
