Learn How to Protect your Internet Privacy and Have a Peace of Mind
It’s obvious that you’re realizing that you need to have a VPN service to ensure your Internet Privacy. What you may not yet know is that our VPN service keeps your Internet browsing private, so people can not see, detect, nor decipher your internet traffic to steal your personal information. When your VPN is turned on hackers and unscrupulus prying eyes can not peek at your traffic, when turned off they can through a variety of listening methods. Using our VPN service can help you increase your internet privacy and you can even increase it more with some best practices we share with you. This makes it safer for you to conduct bank transactions, internet shopping cart transactions, and just browse the internet with no one being able to sniff your traffic or steal your traffic.
What is Internet Privacy?
When you think about privacy, think about all the things about yourself that you might want to protect. First, think about of the basic things like your name, address, phone number, email, credit card information. Second, think about going a level deeper to include your usernames, passwords, bank account information. Third, dive deeper and think about your browsing habits, web sites you visited, places you have been on the Internet.
When you consider all of these things there are things that you don’t mind sharing and there are things that you don’t want shared. Everyone is different, and privacy is a personal choice. However, unknowingly you could be sharing some of the stuff you don’t want shared. That’s the essence of “Internet Privacy” sharing only what you want to share, and keeping private the things you want private.
Is your Personal Information Safe?
You probably already know that I am going to ask you if you use a VPN and if you answer yes your personal information is safe and if your answer is no then your information is not safe. I am not going to ask the question though because its too obvious. A VPN is really only the starting point for safeguarding your information, your personal practices also matter.
You may not know if your personal practices are up to snuff for safeguarding your personal information until you discover the information for yourself. We have a few questions to ask yourself so you can gauge how safe your information is, answer the questions below yes or no.
- Do you know how strong your passwords are?
- Do you know when a website is secure and what you should do if it is not secure?
- Do you know when you updated the software on your computer or personal device last?
- Do you know how to prevent cross-website tracking?
- Do you log into your web accounts from computers or devices that you do not physically own?
You probably already figured out that If you answered no to any of these questions then its in your beset interest to learn more about how to protect your personal information. The protection of your personal information is important to us, and we don’t want to leave you hanging, so we have created an e-Guide that explains these for you.
How Your Information can be Stolen Without You Knowing
You may not know that no matter how you connect to the Internet there is a way to eavesdrop your connection and read all the information you transmit. This is true for wired, wireless, and WIFI connections. Although attacks are most common on WIFI — because they are cheap and easy to attack — it doesn’t mean that the other two are without vulnerabilities. One of the primary ways attackers gain access to your communications is the man-in-the-middle attack. They trick you into believing that your connection is normal, and they send and receive all your communications on your behalf as if they were you — all the while reading your traffic learning your personal information.
Unless someone has a specific reason to attack you personally you might not ordinarily be a target at your home. People who carry out these sort of attacks normally do it where there is lots of traffic, and on shared WIFI because its very easy to collect and assess multiple users until they find an easy target. People are easy targets if they do not use a VPN and they don’t pay attention to key signals that let them know their connection is being monitored. The attacker is free at this point to take what ever it is they are after.
How to Protect Your Personal Information
The good news is that you can protect yourself from these attacks with our VPN service and with some additional personal practices we share with you. Most banks and reputable websites do a good job of protecting your information when you connect to them. No matter how tight their security is, its your practices that matter most. We aren’t going to deep into every aspect of protecting your personal information, instead we are going to talk about the BIG 3 practices that will go a very long way to protect you.
First, highest on our list is your password security. We can not emphasize enough that your personal security is only as good as passwords you create. We recommend that at very least that any account you have that is tied to financial information that your password is unique for every account. If you use the same password for every account then if someone were able to obtain your password somehow for one account then they could use that same password to log in to all of your other accounts. Yikes!
If you don’t already have a password on your personal mobile devices you should turn this feature on immediately. Chances are you have all sorts of apps on your phone that automatically log you into your account and you use the remember password function built in then all of your passwords for sites you visited are stored on your device. If you lose your phone then everything that you have accessed in the past could be compromised. The good news is that if you have a password/pin set on your phone then this information can not be easily accessed. Also be sure to set the lock out function and erase data after too many failed logins.
Second, we highly recommend that you update your software immediately as soon as new patches come about. These software patches often have fixes for security vulnerabilities, and you want to ensure that these attack vectors are closed. Many of these vulnerabilities allow someone at a remote location access your device and take over your information. In addition, if you have an old computer or old device with outdated software that you can no longer get patches for you should discontinue using this device for doing transactions with your financial information. Most importantly is to make sure that your browser is up to date.
If your software is up to date then your browser and software should be sending you warning messages of when you are visiting a site that is not secure or that there may be middle man eavesdropping your connection. Pay attention to these messages. If you get a messages stating that the site is out of date and not using updated security, its safe to view the information on the site, but don’t log into the site.
Third, you are probably starting to realize the benefits our VPN service can provide you. With our VPN turned on you are adding an extra layer of protection, so your connection can not be eavesdropped and eliminates the man-in-the-middle attack on your information. When you use our VPN, eavesdroppers and would be thieves can not decipher your traffic to attack you no matter how you connect to the internet.
When you use your VPN there’s a pre-shared encryption key in which randomizes all of your traffic in an encryption cipher. The only way for the information to be cracked is with the key to the cipher, which you don’t have and no one else has except your VPN provider. We use military grade encryption (AES 256) to encrypt your traffic and the cipher is so strong that it would take 50 super computers more than a billion years to crack the code using brute force.
Why your Internet Connection is not so Private
Hold on to your chair we are about reveal something you probably aren’t going like very much. Your personal Internet connection whether its the cable Internet, fiber, DSL, or your mobile carrier the chances are your provider is logging every website you visit and selling this information about you to advertisers. They are also selling information like your location, your habits, the time you are using the Internet and more. No wonder you get adds eerily similar to what you have been viewing. Lets hope what you have been viewing wasn’t private to you or the next time someone is looking over your shoulder while you are on the Internet will see the advertisements that you have been targeted with.
Pouring insult into injury is that they are allowed to do this without your knowledge and without your consent legally. (Read more here). Your browsing habits are for the most part not private. The good news is that there is not much need for your browsing habits to be private. In one way we want the internet to be responsive and useful to us, right? We enjoy having advertisements that were directed to us based on our life circumstances and things were interested in. Except for the certain areas of our life we want private, but that’s really not your choice given the laws that govern your privacy.
What about your browsing habits do you think you want private? Do you want others to know about your gift shopping? Do you want others to know about medical condition(s) searches for ailments you are not certain you have? Are there medical conditions you are researching about yourself that you are not ready to share? Is there a reason to keep some of your browsing information to yourself that you don’t want to disclose to others, for a personal reason?
The answer is of course you do, we all have something about our life we wish to keep private and we should be able to do so without question. We should be able to control what the Internet captures about us and what does not. We want to help you get there. No VPN can guarantee all of these things at once. However, if you learn a few habits your internet can be a lot safer and more private. From your device to your provider in most cases your privacy is not protected unless you use a VPN.
How using a VPN increases your privacy
The problem is that many of us don’t know for certain what information we are making public what information we are keeping private. We believe and advocate that the end user should be in charge of their own information and make this decision for themselves what is public and what is private. However, there are laws in place that keep you from knowing what is being shared about you, and it does not require business to reveal or disclose the fact that they are capturing and logging your information.
When you use our VPN service you prevent eavesdroppers and your ISP from being able to steal your information and capture your information to exploit it or resell it. When you turn on your VPN it creates an encrypted pathway that can only be read by you and your VPN server. The VPN server then brokers your connection to the internet on your behalf — completely hiding you as the origin of the traffic. However, there is another step that you need to take to be fully protected (we’ve dedicated an article to it here).

Is our Cloud Based Architecture Right for You?
The “Cloud” is a fancy way of saying, “the heart of the internet”, these days Internet content and media providers are continuously consolidating servers to a monstrousness thing called the cloud. The cloud is a formation of data-centers across the globe that are of gigantic proportions and they host most of the World’s internet. Instead of creating a home-brew server farm located somewhere in farmland USA, we joined the ranks and serve you 100% out of the cloud. This means that your access to content is virtually faster than it would be if we hosted our own servers. This is because that its extremely likely that the webpages and content you are accessing is already in the cloud in the same datacenter and that your access is nearly instantaneous.
Our cloud based architecture provides you fast, reliable, and a highly available VPN connection. We’ve engineered the best in class VPN service that won’t leave you disappointed. Our quality of service minded engineers have created a fault tolerant architecture using a proprietary “infrastructure as code” algorithm that self heals and responds to trends. If a server is under-performing we terminate it, and spawn a new one automatically in an instant, and you won’t notice the drop in performance. The platform expands and contracts based on the amount of traffic running through our service which means our service is always ready when you want to connect. You always get what you pay for which is fast, reliable, and highly available VPN service at a great price.
The advantage of using our service is that it works every single time. You pay for the service and we deliver. When you are connected with us you won’t feel the burden of an overworked servers that can barely keep up with demand. Our service is so light weight you will forget its turned on. Our compression and other performance enhancing features that speed up your VPN service. As a matter of fact, we prefer that you leave your VPN on always, and we won’t boot you off arbitrarily because your connection is stale or inactive.
Our Service is Right for you if These Things Matter
You want protect your personal information
Your financial information is worth protecting
You want to keep your browsing habits private
You want to a VPN that won’t slow you down
Maybe you haven’t decide to join Nue Wave VPN yet, but the more you think about it, the more you are going to think you are missing out on our great product. Our service is unique, we only cater to US citizens. This means we only spend money on an architecture that makes your experience better. We don’t offer connections to other countries you never heard of. Why would most US citizens need VPN service to another country? It doesn’t make sense, and why empty your wallet for access to a 150 countries you never heard of? In addition, we don’t have servers in all 50 states, again why would you need it? If you are connected to the US via a VPN, can you access the world Internet, or can you not?
There’s nothing special about accessing your VPN from Chicago versus New York. Your connection is not faster, and neither are locations are cloud computing hubs. Maybe if you are a foreign national outside the USA you might want to access content in your home country in your language, but in this case our service is not for you. Our service is for Americans who want content in the USA in English. Because we focus solely on providing Americans service you can probably guess that our service is going to provide you the fastest and most reliable service because our proprietary “Infrastructure as Code” says so.
At this point I think we are friends right? I know lots of things are going through your mind right now, as this was lots of information to absorb. I want to tell you person to person whats been itching at the back of your mind. How do I know which VPN provider to go with? The answer is simple, go with the one that sold you on believing theirs is the best for your needs. If you need access directly to Cairo Egypt, then you should get the one that gets you there best. If you need access to the USA then you should get the service that gets you there best. Chances are you only need access to the USA, and that is what we are here to provide.
Your Privacy Just Got Better
When comparing VPN providers please read the fine print of what you are purchasing. There are no laws stating that a VPN provider can’t resell you browsing information just like ISPs and Mobile Carriers. Unless they explicitly tell you that they don’t sell your information then you should probably assume that they are selling your information to third parties. This would sort of defeat one of the main reasons to use a VPN in the first place, which is to protect your personal information and browsing habits.
Nue Wave VPN makes the pledge to you that we do not log your VPN browsing, so theres nothing interesting to resell to third parties. We do not share your account related information either. Your information in your VPN is known to anyone other than you.
The encryption we use is so good the government can’t even see your traffic, nor trace it back to you. In addition we never log any of your internet VPN traffic.
We would like to earn your service. We offer 30 days risk free with every subscription. When we say cancel at anytime in 30 days for a full refund we mean it.
