A VPN for Twitter is already a great tool for online privacy and security. But you can actually boost the security of your VPN for Twitter with a few neat tools. These tools help you monitor your VPN so you can avoid dangerous gaps and steer clear of new security threats.
is a tool that you can use to monitor your VPN for Twitter. First, it can be set up to make sure that no traffic is sent over your connection if your VPN is not running. There is a free version that works for PPTP connections, but the Pro version is recommended because it supports OpenVPN. The free version limits you to managing up to three programs for automatic close and run, but you can connect unlimited apps with the Pro version. The Pro version also helps protect you from DNS leaks that sometimes occur even when you are connected to your VPN for Twitter.
VPNetMon is a simpler but effective network monitor. It tracks your IP address for changes and shuts down all connected and running applications in case of an unrecognized IP. You will need MS Net Framework for this, but the installation and setup is very straightforward. VPNetMon does not protect against DNS leaks, but you can check and fix any DNS leaks on your VPN for Twitter connection at the source.
PPTP VPN for Twitter
If you are running PPTP on your VPN for Twitter, you will enjoy fast speeds. But PPTP leaves you vulnerable to a lot of security threats, especially if you are on IPv6. IP addresses for users on PPTP can easily slip out and expose them. If you still prefer to use PPTP instead of switching over to the more secure OpenVPN, you will need to closely monitor your IP address with one of the above tools. Still, it is much safer to use a more secure protocol. OpenVPN is a good balance between speed and security so you don’t have to sacrifice either one.
