Browsing the Internet securely and without having someone tracking your whereabouts can be achieved through an anonymization service or using a specialized software that will take care of everything without requiring too much interaction for the user.
Among the tools that especially designed for this purpose, you might come across Vpn4All, a sleek looking utility that is able to establish an encrypted connection to a secure server that ensures no one can intercept the outgoing and incoming traffic.
The highly secured links are available for all users who subscribed to the service and through this program it is possible to benefit from numerous VPN servers and secure IPs, including fixed ones. The configurations that are at your disposal are rather basic, but nonetheless essential.
You can have Vpn4All run on Windows startup and establish an encrypted connection immediately. If you are behind a restrictive firewall, there is an option to use TCP servers on launch, but you should note that this will have a negative impact on the overall speed and this method is also prone to disconnections.
In case you need to send and receive e-mails during the time the VPN connection is active, you can enable this from the dedicated area of Vpn4All. All you will have to provide is the SMTP server address from your Internet Service Provider (ISP) in case the e-mail provider doesn't support SSL SMTP.
A neat feature of this application is the ability to change the IP address automatically, at a predetermined time interval. Alternately, you can have a 'Change IP' button added to the main window of Vpn4All so you can make the modification instantly, by hand.
Thanks to the many useful features it brings and especially to the ease of use that characterizes it, this utility can prove to be one of the smartest choics in its category.
