WireGuard® eliminates bloated code bases common to other VPN protocols like OpenVPN for a much faster, more streamlined VPN experience.
Yes. WireGuard® has a more efficient code base, which means there are fewer opportunities for leaks, bugs, or errors. WireGuard® also uses the latest VPN encryption standards, making it even more secure than older protocols using older standards.
Open source means that the software’s source code is public and free for anyone and everyone to inspect and analyze. This increases the overall security of the software, as its open to public scrutiny. Open sourcing is a very important practice when dealing with sensitive data, like personal internet data, so open-source VPN protocols like WireGuard® help users trust that their sensitive data isn’t being mishandled.
Open-source software is often regarded as being particularly safe and trustworthy. This is because if there were any security or privacy concerns, they would be plainly visible to anyone who inspects the publicly available code. When a company uses open-source software, it sends the message that they have nothing to hide. Conversely, using closed-source software can sometimes be seen as conspicuous, but this is not necessarily the case as many businesses prefer to keep the code behind their proprietary software a secret. Private Internet Access is proud to be one of the few VPN services committed to open sourcing all of our VPN apps and using top-rated, open-source VPN protocols like WireGuard®.
