REVIEW: CactusVPN

A virtual private network (VPN) secures your data by encrypting it before it leaves your computer network and becomes part of the internet. As you must be aware, the internet allows free flow of information and this includes your IP address, your location on the globe, even the make and model of the computer you are using and you really do not want such information to end up in wrong hands. This is where a trusted and secure VPN provider can help you and this post will tell you more about such a provider, CactusVPN.

The most important change that CactusVPN will bring to your network is the ability to surf the internet anonymously. No more getting worried about where you head on the internet and who might be looking back at you. CactusVPN will hide your true IP and keep you anonymous at all times. Unlike other VPN providers whose connection can drop and reveal your true IP, CactusVPN comes with an Application Killer that instantly kills the application that you are using as soon as the VPN connection drops. The good news is that Application Killer can also wake up applications as soon as a secure VPN connection is established so you need not stay up at nights fearing when your torrent downloading might halt.

Yes, CactusVPN allows you to use torrent downloads without any holdbacks and even lets you stream content from sites that usually restrict content by geographical borders. So, whether you want to watch movies on Netflix, series on Hulu or documentaries on the BBC iPlayer, you can simply start watching them by using CactusVPN. The software manages this by using a simple technology called SmartDNS. While this has to be purchased separately, it can be used easily using the CactusVPN software and is activated instantly. SmartDNS also enables content to be sent to you directly, thereby removing the lengthy waiting times that usually come with other sites that promises geo-restricted content. This is also why torrent downloading speeds are also not affected when using this software.

CactusVPN is the first company that started offering 5 different VPN protocols on all their servers.
