VPN is a thing these days, more and more options are coming to the market trying to battle Internet censorship and ensure more secure browsing. VPN is a Virtual Private Network, which was initially developed for larger businesses to help keep their internal communications safe. As our everyday communications and lives in general slowly shift into an online spectrum, VPN services become more sought for and therefore available to everyone. To put it simply, with VPN one be accessing the web from London, but make it seem as if they are connected from Paris. This means if some services or websites are only available for those in Paris, I can still access them from my London computer thanks to VPN.
Some people feel uncomfortable knowing that their data can be monitored and collected by governmental structures, so they access the Internet through VPN to keep their online activities, communications, geographical location, and IP address to themselves.
There is a multitude of VPN services offered as I mentioned and the bigger demand, the wider the array of those services, however not every service is of an expected quality and depending on their possibilities the speed of your Internet connection can drop significantly when using a VPN.
One of the VPN utilities on the market is offered by Eltima Software. These developers have been around for years, which makes them trustworthy, and they have a bunch of known products, such as Commander One, Folx, SyncMate, PhotoBulk, etc. They now also offer their Cargo VPN service.
VPN means security for its users, Cargo VPN offers its users security and privacy. Paying your bills online, checking your bank account, logging in to your social networks through VPN promises more security for your sensitive data.
Cargo VPN can help you save money. It is known for a fact that many car rental services, airfares, online streaming services base their pricing on the client’s location. With Cargo VPN you can play with different geo locations to see if you can score a really good deal and pay less.
As you are switching locations and are communicating with the Internet through a VPN “corridor” you may experience the slower connection speeds. It can be especially noticeable if you are using your new Apple TV. Cargo VPN still promises a high connection speed as they claim to have over 70 locations around the world for their 1000+ high-speed servers, which ensures instant and constant access through Cargo VPN to any website or service from any continent.
Let’s see how much it will cost you to use Cargo VPN. This app is free on the Mac App Store, (and there’s a version for iOS devices) for 24-hours trying and testing, and then you can choose one of the subscriptions it offers. One month will cost you $9.99, 1 year – $49.99 ($4.17/mo), and 3 years – $99.99 ($2.78/mo). One subscription allows connecting up to 5 Macs in one account.
In-app purchases include Personal Static IP that is exclusively yours, Personal Server for a higher level of speed and protection, and slots for additional devices.
To sum it up, Cargo VPN is a worthy app that is highly competitive and maintains what is advertised. You just have to make a choice, whether it is the connection speed you care about, or security layers over your personal data because no matter how high-end a VPN server is, it will cut some of your connection speed down. However, it will also help you bypass certain blockages and keep your private data away from various snoopers on the web.
