VPN provides you with encrypted and private tunnel between your device and the VPN server. Double VPN is more powerful use of VPN technology – it forwards your encrypted traffic through two VPN servers instead of one. Internet traffic is encrypted twice.
For example, with a double VPN your connection is twice as secure, anonymous and private by connecting through France and Netherlands, instead of just server in France.
There are different types of double VPNs - double-hop, multi-hop, cascading, nested, or chained VPNs. The main concept is using two or more secure tunnels consecutively.
So, what are the advantages and benefits of double VPN?
Your ISP may see the first connection to the VPN server, but will not know your destination IP address, as the connection then goes to the second VPN server. Besides, the second VPN server can’t know your real IP address since it is hidden by the first VPN server
With a double and multi-hop VPN your IP address is replaced several times. You are able to unblock websites in different regions with no restrictions.
Double and multi-hop VPN protects you against hacking and more sophisticated attacks.
Your ISP or hackers can identify the initial IP that connected to the VPN, but they have no way of knowing onto which server the traffic exits.
Double VPN provides you with additional level of protection and privacy. Your IP address is replaced twice. There is no way to monitor your activity by your ISP, government agencies or hackers.
On other hand, double VPN is usually expensive additional feature offered by VPN Service Providers.
One of the disadvantages of Double VPN is some drop in speed because your traffic is encrypted and decrypted for every VPN server and it goes through several locations. A standard VPN is suitable for most people, while double vpn is good for people looking for extra protection, encryption, and anonymity.
