FAQ - Privatix
How do Privatix extension and app work, what does it do? How safe to use it?
Privatix is using a complex of network and encryption technologies (SPDY/IKEv2/OpenVPN) to fully encrypt all of your browser and Internet traffic. With Privatix your IP-address is hidden, your Internet is unrestricted and your privacy is protected.
Privatix creates a HTTPS tunnel (in browser extensions) and military-grade encrypted VPN (in mobile apps and desktop software) between your device and our Internet gateway.
This secure tunnel prevents hackers, governments and ISP's from spying on your online activity, intercept sensitive personal information like credit card details, emails, social networks accounts or anything else you send over the Internet.
Is Privatix FREE? How is it possible?
Privatix is completely FREE and available to any Internet user who has installed and set up our browser extensions, mobile apps or desktop software.
At the same time we stay FREE, we need to finance our servers and operational costs, so we also provide PREMIUM accounts for the sandwich price. Premium users help us to cover expenses and provide free and uncensored Internet in countries when users cannot afford sophisticated encryption solutions.
Buying premium – you’re making the world more free and literally a better place.
The difference between FREE and PREMIUM is a number of available locations, priority on our servers that allows faster speed and no ads or free-slot waiting.
We keep Free users privacy and protect them from prying eyes, just as we protect our Premium users. If you like to surf or chat privately, unblock websites and video, be invisible online, you’ve just found the best and easiest way to do that.
