PureVPN is one of the fastest Virtual Private Network (VPN) services available on the internet today, and the PureVPN software for Windows allows your computer to connect and route its signal through this fast and secure online network. Whether you use a VPN for data security, online anonymity, unblocking regional content to avoid ISP internet throttling, or to control latency, PureVPN is an award-winning paid VPN solution which provides enough flexibility for even the most demanding users.

A VPN works by allowing your computer to connect over an encrypted connection to another computer and have all of your internet and other traffic routed through that computer. There are numerous reasons why you might want to consider using a VPN. A VPN can encrypt your data between you and your VPN server if you are connected to an unsecured public WiFi network. If you are concerned about some sites tracking your IP or identity, a VPN can help mask this information. If you are trying to unblock regional content and stream videos while traveling abroad, you can connect to the internet via a server in another region. In the ongoing battle for net neutrality, many internet service providers have been caught slowing internet service for users who stream videos or download torrents online. A VPN can encrypt your data and bypass this data throttling, sometimes greatly increasing your download speeds.

PureVPN's service has won recognition from multiple online reviewers, not only for the speed and quality of its service and customer support but also for its robust and simple client-side software. Voted fasted and most reliable paid VPN by PCMag.com and vpncomparison.org, PureVPN provides client-side software for Mac and iOS, but the Windows client software is where PureVPN really shines.

Users can choose from a wide variety of VPN encryption protocols, including fast PPTP; secure IPSec and L2TP; or the well-balanced OpenVPN, TCP, and UDP protocols. For users new to VPNs, PureVPN's software will automatically set up the best protocol for you depending on your intended use of the service (e.g. fast PPTP for low-security video streaming, OpenVPN UDP with data compression for secure and fast P2P downloads). These settings can be changed at any time from the settings menu. Users can let PureVPN choose the best server for them to use, proposed by automatically checking response times to various servers on the global network. Alternatively, users can select any server or data center they wish from an easy global map or list of cities. A user can specify to connect specifically to the LONDON 1 server, or they can choose to connect to the LONDON data center in general and they will automatically be connected to the fastest of the 32 servers which PureVPN has in London. This automatic server selection and optimized routing ensure that PureVPN maintains the fastest, most reliable, and lowest-latency VPN currently on the market.

The extreme flexibility of PureVPN's client software, as well as the quality of its VPN network, make it an excellent choice for VPN users of every disposition.
