Introduction

Our VPN immediately protects your internet privacy and security while giving you full internet freedom and instant access to content streaming.

Connect every device in your entire home or office with a Plug & Play SaferVPN Router.

What is SaferVPN?

SaferVPN is a Virtual Private Network (also known as VPN), that hides one's real IP address and encrypts all the incoming and outgoing data while using the Internet. In this way, the user gets anonymity and safety.

SaferVPN allows you to connect to more than 400+ servers in 30+ countries across the globe and gives you the ability to use remote network resources as though you are physically there. Simply install SaferVPN Software, enter your SaferVPN Username and Password and click the connect button.

How to secure a Wi-Fi hotspot with SaferVPN?

SaferVPN automatically detects the potential threats over Wi-Fi networks. It immediately protects the user’s device by encrypting all of the Internet connections with 256-bit AES and changes the current IP address.

In addition to this, SaferVPN also provides a tracking blocker, which prevents activity tracking from being activated and provides a malicious content protection tool, both activated by default and reachable via the 'Settings' button.

Apart from this, as soon as you enter into a new Wi-Fi range, either free or password protected, SaferVPN detects if it's a known or unknown network. If unknown, SaferVPN then asks if it should protect your device. If known, the device will be protected automatically, but only if you have configured the respective network to be handled that way.
