What Types Of Data Are Encrypted?

Does Using A VPN Slow Down My Internet Connection?
When you are using an active VPN connection all of the inbound and outbound traffic on your computer/device is encrypted and transmitted to the VPN server that you're connected to. This results in a slight slowdown versus unencrypted data transmission. However, in some instances you might see your internet speeds increase.

Other times you may want to connect to a VPN gateway in a specific country so that you can access certain websites or services. The Ghost Path app makes it easy to manage the gateways that you connect to.
