How Does VPN Encryption Work?

When you connect to the internet, you send data between your device and the server you’re connecting to. By default, that data is unencrypted meaning anybody can read it. By using PIA VPN, your data is sent through an encrypted tunnel in an unreadable and unbreakable format.

Want To Know More?

Absolutely. As more and more of our lives take place online, encryption has never been more important. With everything from online banking to social media, everybody has online data now that they must secure. Even private emails, texts, and photos must be protected. End-to-end VPN encryption keeps all your online data safe so, even if it were intercepted by a cybercriminal, they wouldn’t be able to read any of it.

When you connect to a PIA VPN server, you’re assigned a new IP address and secret keys are generated. Then a secure tunnel is established using those keys that only your device knows. Then the VPN protocol encrypts the data that you send through this secure channel. Without those special keys, nobody besides you can unencrypt your data — protecting your data, privacy, and safety online.

AES is the gold standard of data encryption. There is no record of AES encryption ever being broken. A brute force attempt to crack this encryption algorithm would take theoretically billions of years. It is used by all kinds of security experts, governments, militaries, and other top secret entities like the NSA to protect highly sensitive data.

A proxy server allows you to route your VPN connection through an additional server location. Shadowsocks and SOCKS5 are two proxies that PIA offers for users looking to bypass harsh geographical restrictions like those in China, North Korea, or Russia.
