Double VPN to maximize your privacy
Connect via two different VPN servers and add an extra layer of security.
What is double VPN and how does it work?
Double VPN enables you to connect via two different VPN servers. Most of the time, these are located in different countries. As an example, make your VPN connection even more secure and private by connecting through Canada and Germany, instead of just a Canadian server.
How can MultiHop benefit you?
How can I improve my connection?
Looking to access something far away from you geographically? Choose a server nearby as your entry point. If you’re in Germany (or someplace near) and need a Singapore IP address, try the Germany – Singapore pair.
Do I need multiple VPN connections?
It depends on what you mean by multiple connections. Double VPN with MultiHop is ideal for security-conscious users who want to get the best possible experience.
Use MultiHop if:
You want to be more private when connecting to your own country
You’re an activist who wants to stay as far away as possible from government tracking
You’re a journalist who’s protecting your sources
You’re security-focused and it’s your key reason to use a VPN
Don’t use MultiHop for:
P2P downloads or uploads – we redirect you to servers meant specifically for that
Everyday internet usage – a VPN offers a reliable layer of protection for casual users
Streaming – MultiHop may impact the speed in some cases
Using two separate VPN services, on the other hand, isn’t something we can recommend. There is a high possibility that they will interfere with one another and noticeably slow down your internet.
Is VPN chaining with MultiHop safe?
It absolutely is. Our industry-leading encryption secures your traffic 100% even without MultiHop double VPN. This feature only adds to improve your security and privacy online.
