OpenVPN is a highly secure, open-source protocol for VPN encryption. It represents the tunnel between the VPN software and server that enables secure data transmission.

OpenVPN is the solution for any online safety issue, as it features multiple configurations for everything from personal to big business use.

VPNs (virtual private networks) tend to be slow, but otherwise, your data transmission will be far from safe. You have to choose the lesser of the two evils - but not anymore. OpenVPN is the solution for any online safety issue, as it features multiple configurations for everything from personal to big business use.

OpenVPN functions on two basic protocols - transmission control (TCP) and user datagram (UDP). TCP guarantees that your data will be properly received on the other end, while UDP operates quicker, but without the checks that TCP performs. The program guarantees secure connection via switching to TCP if UDP fails.

When it comes to security, OpenVPN is watertight. It provides the users with various options for controlling the client security, as well as that of the server. Another benefit lies in the multifunctionality, as you can use the program across platforms.

Besides, OpenVPN provides a solid transmission speed. Connection drops are rare. Even if they do happen, the program will reconnect automatically as soon as possible, although that may take a few minutes in some cases. There are options for manual set-up if you want to use the more advanced features of the program, but the automatic connection works for most users.

Where can you run this program?

OpenVPN is a versatile app that runs on Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, and Linux.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes. OpenVPN delivers on all fields, but SoftEther does the same, and it’s a matter of preference which you choose.
