There are many reasons why you might be concerned about your safety on the Internet and why it is wise to use a VPN when using your computer and phone online. Please read the following list which details the most common reasons for wanting to be safe and use a VPN.
1 Protect yourself from identity theft and eavesdropping
Can Hidden24 protect me from someone stealing my identity or eavesdropping on me?
Yes, this is one of the most important usages of a VPN service like Hidden24. When you for example visit a cafe, library or other public place, and connect to their wifi, you are essentially sharing the internet connection with anyone else also connected to the same wifi. A malicious user can then eavesdrop on your network traffic . the websites you visit, the forms you fill out, and the contents of the mails you send. This is easy to do with modern technology and some knowledge on “sniffing” network traffic. With Hidden24, you are protected against anyone eavesdropping on you, and stealing sensitive personal details such as your credit card number, passwords, or even your identity.
2 Safe finances
Do I need Hidden24 to protect me while using my Internet bank?
Yes, Hidden24 provides you with extra protection when you handle your finances via your internet bank. Our service makes sure no one can see which bank you use or at what time you use it.
I want to use my web mail (hotmail, gmail, etc), they are anonymous, right?
No, you are not anonymous when you send web mail, not even when you get to choose your own email address! Since hotmail and the other web mail clients can trace your IP number, it is possible to see that you have registered an account. By using Hidden24 you can remain completely anonymous while using web mail, given that you register your mail account after installing Hidden24.
4 File sharing
I want to be able to share files without anyone knowing. Is that possible with Hidden24?
Yes, Hidden24 supports file sharing in all file sharing clients on the market. You can share files completely anonymously.
5 Increased computer protection
I have an antivirus program and a firewall, do I really need Hidden24 or am I safe without it?
Yes, Hidden24 provides you with extra protection. The firewall protects you against intrusion and the antivirus against virus. Hidden24 provides you with another kind of protection, namely 100% anonymity on the Internet. This is something that neither the antivirus nor the firewall can provide.
I am a journalist, and need to protect my sources. I do not want my own IT-department or my ISP to be able to see which websites I am visiting. Can Hidden24 help protect my journalistic integrity, as well as my sources?

7 Sensitive Searches
