Security

VPNLUX uses AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with 256-bit keys — also known as AES-256, combined with PFS (Perfect Forward Secrecy) using 4096-bit Diffie-Hellmann keys.

The government agencies adopt the same encryption and it is used by the security experts around the globe to protect classified information.

Server Authentication

  • VPNLUX uses HTTPS Authentication for websites and for OpenVPN itself;
  • The green lock (icon) in your browser’s address bar will verify that a site uses HTTPS properly;
  • OpenVPN uses certificates, just like HTTPS, to protect the user against man-in-the-middle attacks;
  • VPNLUX uses an RSA certificate with 2048-bits of length key, identified by SHA-512, a hashing algorithm of the SHA-2 family;

Data Authentication

  • VPNLUX uses HMAC (SHA-256) authentication which stands for keyed-Hash Message Authentication Code. This is used to protect the user from man-in-the-middle attacks or from anyone who can get access to the data and read it in real-time.

Privacy

VPNLUX respects your privacy with a NEVER LOG policy!

Located in Belize, VPNLUX is determined to carry the legacy of Belize that is famous for keeping privacy-friendly policies, unlike EU or USA. Offshore zone gives clients an extra layer of privacy as Belize law doesn’t require VPN providers to keep a record of your traffic.

EU or USA based VPN providers are obliged to collect and process personal data which might be used for Global Mass Surveillance.

Data that VPNLUX never collect:

Browsing history

VPNLUX believes in an absolute freedom of its customers and provides with the best no logs VPN. It never overlooks the website you browse on your device for any purpose.

Traffic data

VPNLUX keeps the promise of your security and runs its own private and zero-knowledge DNS (that never logs your queries) on every VPN server to keep you anonymous and provide you with extra privacy.

DNS queries

The company runs its own private, zero-knowledge DNS (that does not log queries) on every VPN server for extra privacy and anonymity.

Data that VPNLUX collect:

Email address / Username

VPNLUX has zero tolerance for spamming. When you enter your email, they can save it to help you out when you need to recover its password. Your email is safe with VPNLUX and they never pass it on to anyone for any purposes. The zero logs VPN will always make you feel secure.

Financial information

Your financial information is stored encrypted on remote servers and VPNLUX uses it only if you come across an issue of refund or any other problem related to transactions.

Double VPN

VPNLUX takes special care of those customers who desire more protection and anonymity in their VPN experience. That is why; VPNLUX comes with one of the best anonymous Double VPN Technology that allows the customers to use the chain of two servers which are secure with the military-grade encryption.

Double VPN leads to more security and browsing safety of the users. In the double VPN Technology, data travels first through the entry server, then it is routed to the exit server and then it is routed to the Internet. Thus it provides double VPN service to you having a double security along with double encryption while keeping your IP address same as it was at the exit server point.

However, be aware that this extra layer of protection affects a connection speed. The double encryption process will make your connection slower than using the standard VPN service.

Dedicated IP & Open Ports (P2P)

VPNLUX takes utmost care of its users and provides them with a static IP address add-on. The static IP address is for those who want to play poker or gambling online and keep the IP address unchangeable.

If you are fond of playing video games or desire an uninterrupted downloading from torrent (P2P), you can obtain open ports add-on if it is available in the chosen location.

By choosing the Dedicated or Unlimited plan, you will be asked to select any available static IP location from the list. Static IP will be assigned automatically to your account. If you want to change the assigned IP, you need to contact VPNLUX Support for further assistance.

Freeze your account

Your satisfaction is supremely important for VPNLUX. If you are out of your station for any reason and will not use your VPN for some time, you are allowed to freeze the subscription for up to 15 days. No questions asked! VPNLUX understand the freedom from your perspective as well.

Unblock websites

Do you want the full Internet, free of censorship? VPNLux is the easiest way to unblock restricted websites from anywhere in the world as some of the governments in the world do not allow access or limit the access to certain websites based on your Internet traffic.

VPNLux resolves such blocking issues and plays the role of a website unblocker. It routes all of your Internet traffic through a tunnel where this data is encrypted. Thus, your data packets stay away from the censorship and cannot be inspected or manipulated.

If you are in a region where you are unable to open a certain website, you can use available VPNLux locations to connect to one of VPNLUX servers. Thus, your IP address and location get changed according to the chosen location where the website is allowed.

So bypass Geo-location restrictions and live your life with no limitations. No worries about restricted or banned websites from anywhere in the world. VPNLUX unblocks your favorite sites while you appear as local with the help of a global VPN network.
