Why Do I Need A Dedicated IP VPN?

RapidVPN/ February 6, 2016/ Blog/


It’s very early in the morning and I’m sat, staring out of the window at the most unbelievable rainstorm in The Philippines. My other half is sleeping peacefully and I’m trying to explain to her brother, who owns an Internet Café downstairs what I have learned recently about cyber-security and all the reasons why it’s becoming more and more important.

I’m from the UK and I do tend to feel safer when I’m surfing in a public place when I’m home but I am much more careful when I travel the world.

I suppose we are always, constantly learning as the world changes and the demand for awareness increases. It is very easy to become complacent and to simply carry on regardless but the more business you do online, the more banking and shopping you do…it becomes essential that we act in our best interests when it comes to safety and security.

More and more Internet users are learning how to surf anonymously and safely but there is one extra step we should all be looking at in order to make things work more efficiently.

One question that often crops up is, ‘Why do I still run into issues with sites such as PayPal and Google when I’m using a Shared IP VPN?’ Why do I get red flagged?’

The reason is quite simple. When you are using services like Gmail behind a shared VPN IP it might flag your session because Google thinks your email inbox is being hacked. Google just sees an IP address that hundreds or thousands of other people are using.

If you had a Dedicated IP Address, this would solve the problem. PayPal, On-line Banks, Gmail, etc will be able to identify you by your personalized dedicated VPN IP and won’t flag the account and then require you to prove that you are who you say you are. Using a dedicated VPN IP can help enhance the security of your most private online sessions by ensuring no one else except you is accessing your stuff.

So, at the end of the day, a shared VPN IP may offer a higher level of anonymity when browsing the web but Dedicated IP VPN’s provide a more personalized layer of security when signing into private websites or servers.

For any serious web user, to have both a Shared IP VPN and a Dedicated VPN IP has become a very good idea. By using the correct VPN IP for your session, it is now possible to use the highest security practices in all aspects of your online world.

There you have it. Easy to understand right? I need a coffee.


Bye for now!
