GoTrusted Secure Tunnel ensures anonymous browsing a high-speed secure tunnel that encrypts all your traffic (E-mail, Web, IM, VoIP, FTP, P2P) at any WiFi hotspot or wired network with SSL. It hides your real IP and bypasses firewalls & proxies to unblock any Internet application in areas where the Internet is filtered.
GoTrusted uses full VPN (virtual private networking) technology to ‘scramble’ all information leaving your computer, preventing monitors from logging or snooping on your privacy.
In order to be able to test GoTrusted, you have to first create an account. This is quite annoying, but more annoying is the fact that you have to Subscribe to the service through PayPal or give your Credit Card info before being able to download the product and start the 7-days trial. They promise not to charge you only after the trial period, but anyway I don’t find this very pleasant.
After you create your account and subscription you will be able to download the product. The installation is simple and straightforward.
Then you will be asked to enter your email and password you have used for account creation. And you are done. You are now able to hide your IP address using GoTrusted.
Operation of the application is simple and performed either from the status dialog or by right-clicking the desktop tray icon. Double-clicking the tray icon will bring up the status dialog if you have closed it.
In order to get started, press Go Secure button (1). Then you will be asked to close all active Internet applications (2) and after you will be connected to GoTrusted Tunnel (3,4).
