VPN staat wel aan!

Ik krijg steeds in beeld dat mijn iphone niet beveiligd zou zijn met VPN, maar dat is wel zo. Ik heb de vinkjes op alledrie de mogelijkheden gehad (welke is eigenlijk de beste?)

    You are most welcome.

    VPN and Web Protection have different purposes, and you should turn them on depending on your needs. For example, if you want to do some online transaction on your banking site while being connected to an airport or a mall Wi-Fi, you should turn on the VPN, to encrypt & anonymise all your traffic. If you are especially browsing on all kind of new websites that could look suspicious, then Web Protection would be of greater help, making sure that the domains you are accessing are not exposed to online threats (like malware, phishing, miner) by blocking access to dangerous pages.

    Web Protection automatically blocks malicious websites. When a URL points to a known phishing or fraudulent website, or to malicious content such as spyware or viruses, the webpage is blocked, and an alert is shown. The same thing happens when installed apps try to access malicious domains. With Web Protection, you are protected from accessing dangerous, phishing, and fraudulent pages.

    On the other hand, VPN encrypts the data that leaves your device, giving you the benefit of a private network even while you’re on a public Wi-Fi from the airport, mall, café, or hotel. When connected to VPN, you can access websites that are restricted to certain countries and you hide your own IP address, offering your online search more anonymity. VPN only does so much to anonymize your online activities. It won’t protect you online.

    Web Protection and VPN are two features designed for separate purposes: the first keeps you safe while browsing while the latter aims to provide internet anonymity.

    Web Protection uses a special VPN to filter all Internet traffic by scanning the connections for malicious and fraudulent content, so it will trigger the VPN symbol on your iOS device when active.

    I hope the information is helpful.
