Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) are popular tools that are often used to access geographically restricted video content and operate anonymously on the internet. However, what many people don’t know is that using a VPN can actually do more harm than good to your privacy. In fact, by using a VPN you might be unwittingly contributing to the spread of Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM) and other illegal activity online. 

Certain “free” VPNs have included language within their Terms of Use that enables them to re-route services through a customer’s device. This means that the consumers of “free” VPNs have unwittingly compromised their home IP connection. 

In this White Paper, we provide an overview of an easy-to-deploy solution to detect residential IPs and increase data intelligence.

Check out this White Paper to learn:

  • How the popular use of location spoofing via VPNs and DNS Proxies has resulted in millions of hijacked residential IPs being sold to the highest bidder.
  • How residential IP hijacking threatens the safety of children and law enforcement investigations.
  • The tools you can utilize to effectively combat the residential IP threat.

This White Paper shows how IP fraud via hijacked residential IPs is threatening online safety and how you can stop it!
