Overview

PureVPN Windows VPN Software is a virtual private network client software package to use the PureVPN system.

The software provides one click access to the PureVPN service with its extensive network of virtual private servers around the world. There are more than 450 servers available via 80,000 separate IP address across more than 100 countries around the world. This ensures that the user can protect their internet access in a variety of ways across multiple locations.

PureVPN can protect against country blocking of various web sites including proxy sites. The software encrypts all traffic rather than only traffic via a loaded HTTP or HTTPS web site which can be blocked locally at the IP level. The software encrypts end-to-end from the user's PC to the external VPN server which can be located in one of over 100 countries. At this stage, the data is decrypted and continues to travel across the internet non-encrypted from this point (except SSL data which maintains its own encryption separate to that used by the VPN).

The package can prevent geo-location restrictions such as blocked access to HBO, Showtime and other US-based web sites that block foreign access to their US content. Similarly, restriction to the BBC's UK-based online TV channels can be routed around by connecting to a UK VPN server which then appears like the user is accessing the service from the UK rather than from abroad.

Many countries are supported including the UK, the USA, France, China, Australia, Germany and many others. It is a simple matter to change from using one VPN server to a different one in the same country or to switch to using a VPN server in a different country entirely. It only takes a few seconds to re-connect to a different server once the first VPN server has been disconnected from.

256-bit encryption is used during the connection.
