Oftentimes, you cannot install software on a public computer or guest machine on which you have no admin rights
Sometimes, you may find yourself behind a network that is totally locked down and blocks traditional VPN traffic
The solution for these situations is to use our Stealth SSL service
Standard SSL connections (such as secure web pages used by banks) are allowed by most networks. The SSL function is not typically blocked -- even on very heavily filtered networks. If they were, no browser https pages would function.
On occasion, the censors eventually discover the server IP address and block it. To ensure that the server address is not eventually detected and blocked, the stealth address changes daily and is never repeated.
In most cases, this service will break through where every other method has failed. We have tested this service in countries that block virtually everything. The Stealth SSL service has been shown to get through and allow people to break down the walls of censorship. Bypass firewalls, bypass censors and surf the web -- free and clear.
This service is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux and runs on any Windows machine without the need for admin rights or installation.
All personal VPN customers are welcome to use this service, should they need it. It is not a replacement for the Personal VPN which is faster and more robust. However, for times when the Personal VPN cannot be used, this service gives our customers another option to secure their data and unblock web sites.
This service is ideal for use on a flash drive while traveling without your computer and using public or borrowed computers. Just plug in your flash drive, launch the application and you are secured and have access to all web sites.
This service is included in your Personal VPN subscription. Please send us an email requesting activation of the Stealth SSL service on your account. We will email you back verification and instructions with a link to the daily SSL server address.
Stealth SSL Stand-Alone service
In place with repressive firewalls and where only the Stealth SSL service works, the regular VPN service is blocked. Therefore, customers in these areas do not benefit from all of its many features. For these customers, we offer the SSL Stand-Alone service.
The SSL Stand-Alone service does not include the regular OpenVPN connections or the Mobile PPTP options which the regular service provides from servers around the world. If you travel often, or have need for more than mobile services, then we recommend the regular Personal VPN service which includes all the options.
If you are always behind a strong web filter or in a country that completely blocks all traditional VPNs, then the SSL Stand-Alone service makes sense for you.
The SSL Stand-Alone service includes only the use of the Stealth SSL -- $49.99 per year
If you have any questions about what countries require this service or about how it works, please send us an email (prior to purchase) and we can let you know what is best for your situation.
