Port Forwarding blocks all the malicious traffic that could potentially reach out to your mobile devices and exploit them.
The Need for Port Forwarding with Ivacy:
Most OS have built-in Firewall (like Windows). However, a VPN connection constructs a tunnel between your PC and the VPN server. This tunnel passes that through the OS’ built-in Firewall and you lose the extra protection (as it cannot read the encrypted packet). Malicious IP packets can probably enter your system through the public IP assigned to you by your VPN service provider.
To provide you with an extra layer of online security, Ivacy has added a paid Port Forwarding Add-on to its Windows dialer. By activating this Add-on, the VPN user activates a Port Forwarding between the VPN server and the internet so that all internet traffic passes through securely.
