What is a VPN
A VPN (or Virtual Private Network) is a simple way to encrypt & protect your Internet traffic. When you are browsing the Internet, almost half is still unencrypted. That means anyone on the same network can see your history, including sign in information, passwords, credit card information, etc. in plain text. This is extremely dangerous, and VPNs provide a simple solution to protect you from that risk.
What about my browsing history
Without a VPN, all domains you visit are visible to your Internet provider, and your IP address, a unique identifier to track you, can be logged by any website you visit. This is often sold to third-party companies to target ads that follow you around online, and sometimes for more nefarious purposes.
What does Confirmed do
Confirmed not only encrypts your traffic and secures your browsing history, it has a built-in ad blocker as well as blocks tracking scripts from companies known to collect your personal data, such as Facebook, Google, and Twitter.
