What is a VPN?
UNREAL private internet is a VPN service. It protects your calls, texts and data usage from being accessed by third parties. This service is available for PC, MAC, Android phones and iPhones. The standard Private Internet service provides a VPN to one device at a time.
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. It’s a digital network that acts as a middle man between you and the websites you visit while browsing the internet. Data that you send over this private network is encrypted, so it cannot be traced back to you.
This service can be managed through software if you're using it to protect your computer, and it can be managed through our VPN application if you're using it to protect a mobile device. Software and application coming soon.
According to PC Magazine:
"...a VPN creates a virtual encrypted "tunnel" between you and a remote server operated by a VPN service. All external internet traffic is routed through this tunnel, so your ISP can't see your data."
The VPN service, in this case, is UNREAL Private Internet. Read more about the benefits of a VPN service, here.

What to do if you're getting an error message
If your VPN service isn't working, make sure you are using a compatible device. The service can be used with Android phones, iPhones -- and, coming soon -- Mac & PC computers. Windows and Blackberry phones are unsupported.
You must also use the Private Internet service on just one device at a time. If you have it installed on any other phones, disable it and then try your primary device again.
To disable the Private Internet (VPN) on your smartphone, locate the UNREAL Mobile application and tap on it.
Under the Account section, you will see a VPN button. Tap on it.
From here, you can disable the service. If you are still having trouble after disabling the Private Internet service on all other devices -- on your main device, tap on the refresh button. Click here for help with this.
