It is well known that Internet is full of tracking software, advertising, and guys who are monitoring and collecting other people’s data for various purposes. In other words, as long as it’s on the Internet, you can be exposed to risk at any time. In addition, some websites may block or restrict your access depending on the IP address of your location (you must have encountered such situation: a website just shows you with 403 error). In these cases, using a VPN is the best solution at the moment.

Avira Phantom VPN is a free, cross-platform virtual private network (VPN) solution developed by Avira Virus Lab from Germany, which comes with a military-grade encryption protection measure, as well as the foolproof installation and use without any configuration required. It enables users to unblock the restricted services or websites by selecting and using the IP addresses of other unblocked or uncensored nations/regions; lets you securely browse the Internet in an anonymous manner (even in the open/public WiFi hotspots, there is no need to worry about anything); and prevents hackers from stealing your communications data.

In short, Avira Phantom VPN can ensure that your real IP address is hidden, not hacked, not tracked, and not subject to the censorship from any websites. That’s to say, you will be able to surf the Internet securely and anonymously, and to keep your online activities private and hidden from your local ISP (Internet Service Provider).
