Strong VPN is an Australian offshore company that works closely with corporations and governments to ensure the security of their business data. In late 2021, J2 Global acquired StrongVPN. Strong VPN has over 950 servers deployed throughout more than 35 different countries and 60,000 IPs accessible and operates with the most widely used open source protocols including SSL, ICMP, IPsec, VPN, and L2TP. It utilizes AES 256-bit encryption with a strict no logs policy and offers a free VPN service with monthly or yearly fees.
To use StrongVPN to access Windows correctly, you will need to open a Windows firewall to allow connections from other systems. You can do this by right-clicking on the Start menu and clicking on "Local Policies" then click "New Policy" and fill in all the required fields. In the "Firewall Location" field to find the location of your firewall and enter the IP addresses of the servers that you want to secure. Click "Save All Changes" and reboot your computer. When you log in to StrongVPN it will change your browser's settings to match Strong VPN settings so you can continue to browse freely on Windows while keeping track of your traffic.
If you're an avid traveler and use public Wi-Fi hotspots at cafes and other public areas, or if you frequently connect to various locations through your laptop, then having StrongVpn installed on your PC is critical to Windows security. Many people think that having a Strong VPN is simply about being able to bypass firewalls, but this is only the case when you're using the port that's normally used for websites like Facebook and Twitter. To truly enjoy all the benefits of a strongman configuration, make sure you have Strong VPN turned on at the operating system level and have a strong firewall that's set to allow traffic between Windows and Strong VPN. Having this setup will make it so much safer to surf the internet as you won't have to worry about people stealing your personal information and sending you adware or malware. It's always better to be safe than sorry!
