L2TP/IPSec VS PPTP
L2TP is the most secure VPN protocol available for mobile operating systems. With 160-bit encryption, the L2TP offers good speed, but the focus is secruity and privacy. The increase in level of encryption leads to consumption of more processing power which may slow down the communication. PPTP on the other hand highlights just the opposite. As a stripped down (and older) version of VPN, you get faster speeds, but with a few (albeit small) compromises with security.
Both are reliable and secure VPN protocosl on unsecure networks such as Wi-Fi hotspots and shared networks via wireless routers.
L2TP and PPTP are supported byAndroid OS, Windows, and Mac OS X but does not support iOS. Some mobile devices are not compatible with OpenVPN, which is another type of VPN we did not discuss today. Below are setup instructions for PPTP and L2TP for Android. Though there are different versions of Android out there, they are similar enough that they don’t warrant having a separate setup page.
But before you set up your VPN, you’ll need to actually sign up for a VPN service. The security and privacy of a VPN comes from the fact that you are connecting to private VPN servers. If you are using a VPN for games and content streaming, the change of IP comes from using remote VPN servers. Either way, you need access to a server, somewhere in the world.
