vpn wireguard wireguard® is different? how

tarekma7WireGuard VPN – How is WireGuard® Different?
#1
IPVanish is ecstatic to now offer the WireGuard VPN protocol on all major operating systems. WireGuard is considered the latest advancement in VPN connection methods, but what sets it apart, exactly? Here’s everything you need to know about how this cutting-edge VPN protocol is different from the others.

Is WireGuard More Secure?
Put simply, WireGuard is secure. When you connect to IPVanish using the WireGuard VPN protocol, your internet traffic will absolutely be shielded from any snoopers, onlookers, and pesky third parties. But is it more secure than other encryption methods? This depends on a matter of perspective. While there are other, more complicated VPN protocols, what makes WireGuard shine in regards to security is its simplicity. Under the hood, OpenVPN, for example, has lengthy code. By contrast, WireGuard’s code is lightweight and can be implemented in far fewer lines. This makes it much easier for security researchers to audit for vulnerabilities. And because the code is streamlined, any vulnerabilities can be patched quickly.

Is WireGuard Faster?
While WireGuard’s lightweight code has positive security implications, the main difference users will experience when it comes to using the WireGuard VPN protocol is performance. WireGuard connections are virtually instantaneous, and its under-the-hood simplicity means that users will experience consistently higher speeds when using a VPN. This extends to all devices, whether you’re using a smartphone, or securing your entire network with WireGuard VPN protection via a router. Additionally, WireGuard boasts extensive uptimes – the protocol reconnects quickly if and when the connection drops so that users aren’t left exposed and unaware.

Should I Always Use WireGuard to Connect?
While WireGuard’s speed and security benefits are certain, that doesn’t necessarily mean you should always use the WireGuard VPN protocol. In most circumstances, WireGuard will be the most recommended protocol, but there are some situations where you may look into using other protocols, especially when speed isn’t your primary concern. Read our guide to choosing the best VPN protocols we offer, and when you should use them.
