While you may have a general idea of what a Virtual Private Network (VPN) does, do you fully understand the ways a Decentralized Private Network (DPN) protects you?
Let’s start with some basic fundamentals around the Deeper Network. A more secure, private and fairer internet for everyone, Deeper gives control back to the user rather than having your private data and information stored with a central source (think big tech). Deeper combines blockchain, network security, and a sharing economy, to create a global peer-to-peer (P2P) network that empowers the real users of the internet and paves the way for the next generation of the web, also known as Web3.
But how? DPN is a P2P decentralized bandwidth sharing network that is server-less and distributed. Meaning your data can never be stored by third parties, leaked, hacked or subpoenaed. Most importantly, no overreaching body can censor your access to information as we’ve seen all too often recently on a global scale. As a user, you are your own server. With the Deeper Network devices in your home or business, you are given seven (7) layers of cybersecurity protection that will give you the peace of mind you want while offering you censor-free access to the global internet.
Through the intuitive dashboard, users can easily whitelist and blacklist websites of their choosing. This will allow you uninterrupted access to sites you’ve deemed safe while giving you the ability to restrict access to others. Think parental control if you have children. Web filters are features that legacy internet providers promote themselves on and the Deeper Connect devices give you that built-in feature.
BitTorrent Sharing (On/Off)
BitTorrent content, while legal in some counties, is illegal in others. With a Deeper Connect device, you share your bandwidth with others and of course, that means your bandwidth can be used in ways you may not be comfortable with. Understanding that, our team of developers built in the ability to turn this feature off so you have the peace of mind that your bandwidth is not being used for an act that may be illegal in your country.
Still concerned and uncomfortable that your bandwidth is being used by others? Take a moment to read through your share log. On your dashboard, you will find the option to track who uses your bandwidth and for what purposes. You can filter by date and time. More importantly, should you find yourself in a position where you must prove you did not access a “malicious” website, you can easily prove it was not your IP. These logs only exist on your device and if you wish, you can use them to prove your innocence if it ever comes to a situation where there is a need to do so.
Finally, if you still prefer a different option, you can simply turn off your DPN. You can choose to stop sharing any of your bandwidth and you can also choose to stop using anyone else’s as well. Be mindful however that if you stop sharing your own bandwidth, you lose the mining feature and your organic credit score will begin to decrease. Of course, if you stake for a higher tier, you will still earn a daily reward of DPR based on your tier.
