I’ve seen it happen to other people before. I mean, we all did, right? But like I said, it happens a lot because we don’t use our phones much. And I’m pretty sure it’s not like me texting you back. I’m sure I’m not the only one though.
I did a bad job of checking my settings while downloading the app. I think I should have just left it and checked it when I downloaded it.
Its not like you are downloading ios with the app. You are downloading it with a VPN, like the one found in the app store.
That VPN works because you are not connected to the internet. Your browser has a built in DNS server. If your browser does not recognize the domain name you typed into your browser, it will not send any traffic to the server unless you explicitly tell it to.
This is true.
There are multiple types of VPNs and there is a lot of information out there about them. I recommend reading this wiki article before you download one.
Some VPNs work by having a DNS server in the browser. That is usually the only way they will work. That is also why you see VPNs such as NordVPN and ProtonVPN mentioned above. These VPNs require you to connect to the internet in order for their servers to work.
This is just a few of the many flaws that make a VPN an imperfect security measure. The fact is that you can never be 100% sure that your VPN is secure. There are a lot of factors that you will not be able to control with a VPN, such as how many servers are in the network, your IP address, your ISP, and other factors that you may not even know about.
A VPN is the process of encrypting your internet connection (hopefully), then sending your internet traffic through a different internet to a server. So you are sending your internet traffic through a VPN, and your ISP is encrypting your internet connection. With a VPN, the encryption can be reversed with a VPN. So with this in mind, we should probably all use a VPN for one of the reasons mentioned above.
The problem is that a VPN is a virtual private network (VPN). With the VPN, when it’s in your control, you are not allowed to send your internet traffic to your VPN. Instead, you are allowed to talk to your VPN server from the internet, and then you can connect the VPN server to your internet connection once it’s online. With the VPN, the encryption can be reversed with a VPN.
