    Top 5 Mobile VPN App Choices For iPhone And iPad 

    Looking for a VPN app for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch? While there are many great choices at the Apple iTunes store, CNET’s Download.com website does a great job of profiling and listing available apps for iOS users.

    There are dozens of choices, but we have picked our own list of recommended top 5 VPN apps for iOS users:

    1) Kovurt VPN: this is always our favorite, as the VPN services are stable, robust, and used by top-tier professionals around the world. Kovurt’s VPN app is useful in its Version 1.0 only for Kovurt’s paid subscribers, but it’s worthwhile to get a paid subscription because of the great service and stability of the VPN network to keep you secure and private on WiFi hotspots. Download the VPN app from here or click the button from Download.com below to take yourself straight to the download page:

    Get it from CNET Download.com!

    2) Norton Hotspot Privacy: Keep your confidential information safe and secure when you use public WiFi hotspots wherever you are. Norton is famous for its anti-virus software, and now it provides a slim app that keeps your wifi activities safe. Download here.

    3) Hotspot Shield: CNET staff say “Hotspot Shield VPN is a free iOS app with a single aim: to protect your online presence.” Get your own version of the app from here.

    4) Cisco AnyConnect: CNET staff say “Cisco AnyConnect is an iOS app for connecting through VPNs (not necessarily those controlled by Cisco hardware). It provide access through a secure tunnel to allow iPhones and iPads to access corporate e-mail, files, and remote desktops. The app is free and works with any VPN that supports the standard DTLS security layer.” And you can get your own download from here.

    Another Way To Verify Your IP Address When Using VPN Services 

    In regards to this article on the importance of IP addresses and how to best change your IP address, today I want to give you a heads-up on a new service from GlobalIPCheck.com that gives developers a free API to verify and check locations around the globe for users. This service also gives you an immediate look at where you are in the world, according to your IP address.

    Services like Hulu, Netflix, Youtube, BBC, and many others rely on your IP address location to either ban or give you entry to their services. So, for example, if you are sitting in Shanghai but you want access to BBC, you can use a VPN provider to help change your IP address to make it appear as if you are in London. Then you will be able to see the BBC online!

    So GlobalIPCheck.com gives you immediate free ability to see where it appears you are located.

    How To Find Your IP Address and Geolocation For Better Privacy 

    Every computer, every smartphone, and even many devices like refrigerators, cars, and ATMs have an Internet Protocol address. These IP addresses can be static or dynamic, which means they either permanently or temporarily correspond to an actual device somewhere in the world.

    Each time you get on the Internet using your laptop, desktop, or mobile phone, you have an IP address that websites and companies can use to track your location. They then use your location to target advertising, sell you goods, or gather data.

    Cookies also can track your travels on the Internet. But IP addresses are different than cookies. Cookies are small files placed on your computer. You can often disable cookies in your computer, but you can not disable your IP address — you always need an IP address.

    However, you can change your IP address so that it appears your computer is in a different location. For example, if you are sitting in Seattle, all the websites you visit know you are in Seattle, and they can sometimes even figure out the specific building, floor, and room you are sitting in based on the information they have. But if you use a VPN or a great service like TOR, you can either obfuscate or change your IP address, so it appears like you are sitting instead in London, Shanghai, Paris, or Oslo.

    Changing your IP address alone does not keep your information private or secret. Instead, it merely makes it more difficult for websites to understand who you are and from where you are contacting them. You can check your IP address and geolocation here.

    The best way to remain private online is via a VPN that not only changes your IP address, but also encrypts your data online.

    Kovurt VPN Adds Free New App For iPhone, iPad, and iPhone Touch 

    The VPN service at Kovurt.com, whose services are mostly still in Beta but they still offer a few paid subscription options, has launched a new free VPN app.

    We tested the VPN app from Beijing, Hong Kong, Chengdu, London, and New York and all loaded pages quickly on an iPad or iPhone. The VPN app offers “one-click” action, so you only need to click a button once to load all your configurations and the next time you want to get on the Kovurt VPN network you just click “On” in your iPhone’s settings.

    This first version can be downloaded by anybody, but the main features require a login only available to paid VPN subscribers of the Kovurt service. This first version also only offers VPN server connections from Asia, but Kovurt says an update soon will expand all the offerings to servers in Europe and North America. This means anybody in the world can use the app now, but when you connect to the VPN it will appear like you are in Asia — this makes sense for Kovurt since many of its users are in Asia. But the US and Europe are huge VPN markets too, so the next update should make watching Netflix or BBC much easier for Americans and Brits.
