    Thanks for reaching out to us. It will still remain protected and will provide you encryption upto 128 bit. But if you need more encryption then you are suggested to use our app which works with openvpn protocol and provides encryption upto 256 bit.

    Feel free to contact us if you have further question/suggestion!

    No matter how many times I try this, using all the correct details I still get “Unsuccessful” when I try to log in! I even changed my password in case I was putting it in wrong, still no access!
