While other VPNs pitch themselves as tools for streaming blocked video services or guaranteeing internet privacy, Encrypt.me puts safety and security first, claiming to protect you from browser leaking, wi-fi eavesdropping and broadband spying. However, this isn’t one of the best VPNs we’ve tested, due to underwhelming speeds and a couple of feature quirks.
Encrypt.me creates an encrypted virtual network connection between your PC or mobile device and a VPN server, which may be based locally or in another state or even country. This connects to the Internet and all your online traffic runs through it, effectively concealing who you are and what you’re up to.
You can use Encrypt.Me to make sure your Internet connection isn’t being snooped on while connected to a public WiFi hotspot, or to access services or websites that your ISP blocks or that might not normally be available where you are. If you’re worried about governments, stores or corporations gathering information on you, a VPN makes it impossible for them to tie what you do or look at online to your real identity or location.
