PureVPN is a VPN client with support for Windows, Mac as well as iOS and Android devices. The application combines multiple features designed to protect your privacy online, encrypt your connection, and grant you access to restricted websites. Using powerful security protocols and a high level of encryption, PureVPN guarantees online privacy and anonymity, which means the possibility of enjoying the web without limits.
What PureVPN does is create a connection or tunnel between your PC and a server in the host country that you choose, masking your real IP address and assigning you a new one so that you're not only protected, but also anonymous. As a result, you will be able to browse the web as if you were connected from the selected location.
When you first launch PureVPN, and after a simple installation process, you will see that the app has an attractive GUI with all the options nicely organized into easily accessible sections. Useful information like the status of your connection, current IP address, and duration is displayed at the top of the screen, while the Dashboard also displays bandwidth usage. The first step to start using the app, besides signing in with your username and password, is choose a protocol to secure your connection and the desired country. For that, and via dropdown menus, the app puts at your disposal several options like SSTP, PPTP, IKEv2, L2TP, and OpenVPN, and there is an automatic protocol selection option. The countries list is really extensive and the app lets you connect to the fastest servers automatically. An interesting feature is the possibility of establishing a connection by purpose or usage to automatically determine the server that suits your particular needs. Options like file sharing, TV watching, VoIP services, or site blocking are just a few of the numerous alternatives included in the Purpose menu. A more personalized selection of connection parameters is also possible from the dedicated section.
This version of PureVPN also adds a few new features, currently in beta. One of these is Smart DNS, which is installed as an add-on and lets you easily find the top TV channels around the world. With Web Protection activated, the app provides real-time protection as you browse the web. Another new beta feature, called Internet Kill Switch, monitors your connection and 'kills' your Internet activity in case you're disconnected from the service. The app also gives you control over the VPN security settings, letting you set the desired encryption level of your connection.
