Public WiFi hotspots in a hotel, restaurant or train are generally unsafe. There is a risk of being eavesdropped or tracked by someone on the same network or by malicious software. A virtual private network (VPN) sends all data over an encrypted connection and offers a safe and secure path to the internet. There are hardly any Internet Service Providers (ISP) that provide VPN services to their customers and setting it up yourself is rather cumbersome. The few ones that do offer VPN haven’t been able to offer a modern and user-friendly experience to their users. There are a lot of other VPN solutions around, but most of them do not provide sufficient security en privacy to their users.
Let’s Connect! provides an open source VPN solution allowing ISPs, hosters and bussinesses to easily setup a secure VPN service. Even security minded people will be able to deploy it in a home environment. After deployment, users have a safe path from all generic devices.
Let’s Connect! won the ISOC.nl Innovation Award 2018
“A very necessary technical innovation with potentially a huge social impact. For secure connections,
but also for free internet, we are really dependent on good VPN technology, especially now that net neutrality
is under international pressure. A deserved winner of the Internet Innovation Award 2018!”
