About Intego Privacy Protection Encryption Settings


Intego Privacy Protection uses the open source, industry standard OpenVPN to provide you with a secure VPN tunnel by default. OpenVPN has many options when it comes to encryption. Our users are able to choose what level of encryption they want on their VPN sessions. We try to pick the most reasonable defaults and we recommend most people stick with them. That said, we like to inform our users and give them the freedom to make their own choices. Intego Privacy Protection users can also opt to use WireGuard® for their VPN tunnels.
