Answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. It encrypts your online data and creates a secure virtual tunnel between your devices and the Internet. When you connect to the internet through a VPN, your IP address will also be hidden and instead, it will appear as the IP address of the secure server of your choice. That way, your Internet Service Provider, government agencies, hackers or any preying internet eyes would not be able to see your real IP address and physical location or trace your online activity back to you. Because you can freely choose the secure server in your VPN network around the world, you can also gain more internet freedom to access global content or online services that are otherwise unavailable to you, due to location-based Search Engine Result Pages (SERP), censorship or geo-restriction.
You need a VPN to safeguard your internet connection and online activity from cybercriminals who are preying on your data, browsing history, banking information, account passwords and other private information, especially when connecting to a public Wi-Fi. By using a VPN, you will not only mask your IP address, but your data will also be encrypted, so scrambled that no one would be able to decipher or trace it back to you. VPN will also ensure your privacy against your Internet Service Provider, apps and online services you use, and government agencies, who all have been confronted for customer data collection and misuse.
Engineered with expertise, we built Arresti VPN™ for top-notch internet privacy and security, so you can browse, stream, download or access your favourite online services with a peace of mind, knowing your identity and data stay safe. Using split multi-tunnel technology and local access proxy servers, you can enjoy the fastest and most reliable VPN connection wherever you go. But don’t just take our words for it, see why our customers love Arresti VPN™.
Arresti VPN™ is a reliable VPN service in highly censored countries where we have expanded to and launched our service, UAE being the first. Being originally developed in UAE, inspired from the expatriate need to stay connected with home, we understand the importance of connection, privacy, security and reliability when entering countries or regions with unfamiliar laws and regulations. These have driven us to innovate a VPN service that our customers can rely on all the time.
With cutting-edge 256-bit encryption technology, you can rest assured that your data is safeguarded and no one can decipher, track or hack your data. You can also stay safe while using public Wi-Fi. On top of that, we also have a strict log-free policy. None of your activity or connection data is or will be stored in our system, ever.
You may experience a slower internet connection when you’re connected to a server that’s thousands of miles away from where you’re located. However, the difference is often negligible and this is common in VPN usage.
On the other hand, if your Internet Service Provider is regularly throttling on your internet connection when you’re accessing some types of content or services, using Arresti VPN™ can actually speed up your internet connection by hiding your online activities from them. Furthermore, your browsing or streaming experience will be enhanced because now you know that your identity and data stay safe from preying cybercriminals and third parties.
The rule of thumb is to choose the closest server to your physical location. When you want to access something specific to another country, choose the server located in that country (the one closest to you if there are multiple servers in that country). Same applies when you want to access services that are unavailable in your region, choose the nearest server out of your region that allows you to access those services.
Split tunnelling is a feature available to supported apps that allows you to divide your internet traffic to channel some of it through encrypted VPN tunnel and the rest through open network tunnel. This way, when you’re connected to an offshore server, you can still access your local services while keeping only your offshore traffic private. This feature may also come in handy when you’re dealing with a trusted network, applications or services where a VPN may be unnecessary, so you can channel that traffic out of the VPN.

Speed and Bandwidth
Bandwidth is a network measurement showing the maximum capacity of a wired or wireless communication link to transmit data in a given period of time. In a simple term, it represents your connection speed. With Arresti VPN™, you have unlimited bandwidth on all subscriptions, so you can sit back and enjoy the fastest VPN connection anytime, anywhere.
Latency is the time required to transmit data through a network. Bandwidth is the maximum capacity of a network to transmit data in a given period of time. Throughput is the amount of data being sent and received within a unit of time. To explain the connection, the less bandwidth you have, the more latency and the less throughput you will get, which in turn will slow down your internet speed. Thankfully with Arresti VPN™, you will get unlimited bandwidth to enjoy.
In the case when you feel like your connection is heavier and slower than normal, split tunnelling can relieve that network load by channelling some of your traffic that don’t necessarily require a VPN protection outside of the network while keeping the rest of the traffic inside remain encrypted and private.
