What is a PureVPN Browser Extension?

The PureVPN browser extension is one of the lightest and simplest ways to connect your web browser - whether it be Chrome, Firefox, or Edge - to a proxy server. And with the flick of a switch, you can easily turn the plugin on and off as you please while you're browsing the web. However, there is one thing to take note of. The extension only protects your web browser and nothing else on your device. This means that other apps, games, and tools will still use a direct, unencrypted internet connection. If you want to protect them, you’ll need to install the native PureVPN app. Download the PureVPN Chrome Extension now by clicking this 👉 link.

For what purpose can it be used for?
