3 min read

These are the dark times for the online community. These are the times of cyber crimes and digital surveillance. Over 10 million innocent users fall victim to identity thefts and computer viruses every year. That’s why online security gradually becomes our primary concern. Luckily, just like in Superhero comics, there is a guardian in the world of cyber security – VPN Application.

Who is he? And who is his mysterious companion, VPN Browser Extension? Is he a copycat or an assistant? We’ve already discussed the pros and cons of VPN app and VPN extension in our previous article. But today we’d like to focus on the situations where each of them can shine separately. Let’s check this out!

Call for VPN App!

Superheroes rushing for help. VPN app, VPN extensionIn this story, our Superhero is KeepSolid VPN Unlimited. It is a highly secure virtual private network which enciphers the traffic between your device and one of its VPN servers. Its super powers consist of AES-128 and AES-256 encryptions which work as a barrier between you and malefactors in the cyberspace. It can protect you when:

  • You connect to an unsecured public WiFi and cyber criminals try to eavesdrop you with a Man-in-the-Middle attack (MITM).
  • You accidentally install or download a spyware.
  • Cyber criminals try to hack your smart home devices, etc.

The trick is that KeepSolid VPN Unlimited encrypts and protects all of your device’s traffic. That’s why cyber criminals won’t be able to decode your sensitive data even if they manage to intercept it.

Call for VPN Browser Extension!

So who is his aide? The sidekick’s name is KeepSolid VPN Unlimited Browser Extension (an Italian, for sure). And it’s no accident that it sounds somewhat similar to the Superhero’s name. Like the Superhero, this browser extension (available for Chrome and Firefox) is a top-notch service and it has the same security features. The main difference is that VPN extension protects only your browser traffic. Which actually has its advantages over VPN app:

  • VPN extension is your best option if some of your software doesn’t work with VPN app.
  • Sometimes, you don’t want to make all of your software traffic look like that of the VPN. As we’ve already said, VPN plugin only masks your browser traffic, not affecting other connections.
  • It is sufficient if you worry only about your browser traffic.

Bottom line

In conclusion, we wanted to admit that both of the heroes have their concurrent powers. Both of them protect your private data, give you access to geo blocked content, and mask your online traffic. The only difference is their power levels and flexibility. Anyway, it’s up to you which of them to choose. Or better yet, get them both! KeepSolid VPN Unlimited team offers you an ability to protect up to 5 devices with a single subscription – for instance, one for VPN app on your Mac and one for VPN extension on your Chrome. Super convenient and efficient, check for yourself!
