The guardian of your freedom
Modern people know the price of freedom and perceive it as one of their fundamental values. And this freedom also applies to the freedom to visit any Internet resources you want. If you can't access some websites blocked in your country, OpenVPN will help you. This is a multiplatform, customizable, and open-source, free VPN server. It is designed in several versions, including Windows. We will tell you what features it has.
Primary program features
OpenVPN for Windows has earned its popularity due to the following benefits:
The program guarantees a high level of security. You can use OpenVPN to protect your data. Privacy is above all due to 256-bit encryption and high-performance ciphers. Even if someone gets your data, it won't be changed or missed;
OpenVPN runs on all popular platforms. Whether you use a VPN service or the OpenVPN graphical user interface, you can install and use it on all popular operating systems. This also applies to desktop and mobile applications;
Bypass any firewall. It is complicated to block OpenVPN connections because this protocol uses any port on UDP or TCP. In addition, many VPN servers encrypt your web data and display it as standard HTTPS connections to bypass the firewall with ease;
Provides more control over your connection. Unlike other VPN protocols, this protocol allows you to use two data transfer methods — UDP and TCP. It means that you find a balance between the level of security you need and the speed of your web connection;
Compatibility with Perfect Forward Secrecy. This secure encryption makes your device immune to numerous online threats. Since there are no unknown vulnerabilities, this is the best way to protect your network from being hacked.
But we should also mention the disadvantages. OpenVPN for Windows does not provide the best possible web connection speed because it uses high-performance encryption and advanced methods of data encapsulation. However, it is considered to offer incredible speeds, so the price you pay for the security is not that high after all.
Who should install this program?
OpenVPN for Windows has a range of uses. A typical example is using a VPN for corporate work to secure the connection of remote employees or to connect entire buildings and offices geographically dispersed into a single network. VPN also protects an average user using a public Wi-Fi network because such networks are often not secure and risky. Another option is to bypass the blocking of various resources.
