The Total VPN is a downloadable application which provides a higher level of protection than the USB key. The VPN application is much easier to use. It is as simple as logging in and turning the VPN on. The application provides you with encryption, IP masking and ad tracker blocking.
SurEasy’s encryption ensures that your information is protected and secure when you are browsing on the web. Our IP masking feature allows you to connect to servers in up to 16 different regions. IP Masking ensures that you are always connected to one of SurfEasy’s IP addresses so that your personal IP address and true location cannot be traced. Our tracker blocking algorithm blocks tracking cookies used by advertisers to follow you online, giving you a private and peaceful online experience.
Since the USB key worked only within the browser, it only protected the traffic that was in that browser. Any other online activity occurring outside the browser was not protected as this information was not travelling through the server connected to the private browser. With the VPN application all online activity going through your device is protected as the application provides system-wide protection.
In addition, you will no longer receive messages about an outdated browser version when using the VPN with your services online as you are able to use any browser on your system while using the Total VPN. If you receive a message about an outdated browser you can simply resolve the issue by using another browser that is up to date or by updating the current browser that you are using to access the page.
The Total VPN subscription offered to you protects up to 5 devices at one time, which includes Android and iOS mobile devices.
