What is a Multihop VPN?

Ultimate online privacy protection.

When connecting to a normal singlehop VPN service your Internet traffic is routed through a single VPN server. With a multihop VPN service it is routed through 2 or more VPN servers in different jurisdictions. This technology has been carefully incorporated into the IVPN network using the same 256 bit OpenVPN encryption as the singlehop VPN servers.

Multihop connections offer significantly higher levels of anonymity and privacy as adversaries would need to launch sophisticated timing attacks against a traffic stream in multiple locations in different jurisdictions at the same time. This additional security comes at the cost of slightly slower performance due to the additional hop that your traffic is routed through. However customers can switch between single and multihop connections at any time.

In the diagram below Bob (in Brazil) is browsing the news.com.au website in Australia. The traffic is being routed first through the USA server and then through the Amsterdam server before reaching the destination server in Australia. To the Australian server it looks like Bob is in Amsterdam.
