Why do I need to install a VPN on my device?

AdClear’s VPN is critical to blocking unwanted data; it enables real-time analysis and modification of incoming traffic. For example, if a website sends data that is identified as an ad, the VPN recognizes the request and intercepts the ad traffic before it can display. No proxy servers are involved in the process.

Think of it this way: the waiter at your favorite restaurant knows you’re allergic to onions, so he makes sure the kitchen skips them every time – the onions never get near you.
