What is ForestVPN CyberSecurity?
ForestVPN Cyber Security is an enhanced technology that takes your security up a notch. It protects you like a vaccine against websites known to host malware, viruses and scams.
At the same time, Cyber Security will get rid of annoying ads and free up your computer’s resources, resulting in increased browsing speed.
Benefits of using Cyber Security
Skip annoying ads
Totally avoid irritating pop-ups and other intrusive advertising schemes anywhere you go on the internet. One important feature of ad blocker is improved website load speeds. Another important feature is preserving your expensive mobile data from unnecessary data usage.
Block dangerous websites
Cyber Security’s most important task is protecting you and other sites that you visit from scams and threats. SyberSecurity has access to a huge database of dangerous, blacklisted websites. If you come across one of those sites, Cyber Security will step in and block your access immediately.
Avoid botnet control
ForestVPN Cyber Security protects your device from getting hacked by botnet control or DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attacks. Cyber criminals launch botnet attacks using a command and control server to communicate with infected machines. Even if you’ve already been infected with botnet malware, Cyber Security will detect and cut off communication between your device and the command and control server which will prevent your device from being compromised any further.
It’s really simple.
Type the name of the website you want to visit in your browser (forestvpn.com) for example and press enter. And boom, you’re in.
Once you enter the name of the website, your device will contact a DNS server to get the IP address of the desired website. At this point the DNS acts like a gate keeper as it filters the request against black listed websites. When the DNS responds, then access is granted.
- User request a website
- DNS server filter
- Access allowed
- Blocking threats or ads
Not only does ForestVPN Cyber Security check dangerous websites in real-time, but we go one step further. Your ForestVPN dashboard features an analytic tool that shows you exactly how many malicious websites and unwanted advertising were blocked. The data comes up in an easy-to-read graph so that you know exactly which sites are a threat.
If Cyber Security blocks the website, you will see a warning message and will not be able to enter the site or see any of its contents. However, if for any reason you wish to proceed, you can do it at your own risk. To do that, disable Cyber Security in Settings of the ForestVPN app.
Bulletproof your online activities with Cyber Security
ForestVPN doesn’t store any connection and activity logs, ensuring no user can be matched to specific network activity or behavior.
