Browsec extension: concept, objectives and features of the unit
With the need to maintain anonymity on the Internet, probably, have faced at least once, every user of the world wide web. And it’s not so much locking individual resources, as in excessive thirst for your personal information some sites (location, age, and other information, which anyway can be collected and used).
The most common output with this problem is to use the anonymizer by installing a special browser or resort to the services of relevant sites working on the same principle. However, to use the special resources is not very convenient, and to work in an unusual browser and not much pull. What to do in this case?
Browsec VPN: concept and features
Browsec VPN a great solution that will ensure the anonymity of the Internet. This extension is available for the following browsers:
- Google Chrome;
- Mozilla Firefox;
- Yandex. Browser.
Also released versions for these operating systems as Mac OS, Linux, Android (since 4.0.3) and iOS (9.0 or later).
The service can be reduced to the fact that Internet traffic is encrypted and transmitted via a remote cloud storage located in another state. As a result, the Internet site sees the IP address of cloud storage, and not yours. This is enough to get around regional blocking sites. And at the same time, you will work with your favorite browser.
The only novelty is a small icon-icon in the top right of the browser, when you click on that you can change the location of the server through which will pass all traffic (say, choose the server that delay less). If at some point you will want to disable «anonymous mode», you can simply disable the extension by the same button (if the extension is disabled, it is grayed out).
Unfortunately, as in all such programs (running on a VPN) when using delays in the reception and transmission of data. But many users are willing to put up with it, that’s why Browsec got 4.54 out of 5, based on user ratings of the apps for the Google Chrome browser, and 4 of 5 according to Mozilla Firefox users.
