Port Forwarding is a packet filter that blocks unrequested inbound traffic from reaching your computer or device when connected to PureVPN.

The Need for Port Forwarding With PureVPN

Most OS have built-in Firewall (like Windows). However, your VPN constructs a tunnel between your PC and the VPN server. This tunnel passes that through the OS’s built-in Firewall and you lose the extra protection (as it cannot read the encrypted packet). Malicious IP packets can probably enter your system from your public IP assigned to you by your VPN service provider.
To provide you with an extra layer of online security, PureVPN has added paid Port Forwarding Add-on. By activating this Add-on, the VPN user activates additional security between the VPN server and the internet so that all internet traffic passes through securely.

Advantages Of PureVPN’s Port Forwarding Add-On

PureVPN’s Port Forwarding Add-on functions just like a router’s Firewall. It delivers following benefits to users:

  • It protects your system from Unauthorized Inbound Traffic
  • It  safeguards you from hackers exploiting loopholes in your Device
  • It protects the IP assigned to you by PureVPN from cyber scammers
  • It protects upto 5 Devices with one single PureVPN account

Keep in mind that that not all vpns are the same.😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
