CMC VPN – BETA
Do you often use public Wi-Fi networks in cafés, restaurants, and libraries?
Do you often travel to different cities or countries?
If so, your connection may be compromised. The websites you visit can monitored by anyone on the same network as you. That means anyone from the owner of that café, the Internet Service Provider, or even the government can monitor or censor your web traffic.
Sensitive information like your e-mail password, banking details, and your social media logins can be put at risk.
CMC VPN seeks to change that by offering an easy-to-use, affordable, and reliable VPN service.

CMC VPN was created by Alexander Caro. While living as a digital nomad, Alex has often had to rely on public Wi-Fi networks to work while travelling the world. In order to secure his connection, he found himself relying on services that were slow, unreliable, or offered bad value. Even banking abroad proved to be a challenge, with his bank often locking him out from its website when logging in from a new country.
However, what pushed Alex to create CMC VPN was his experience living in the West African nation of Liberia, where mass anti-government protests erupted in June 2019. In order to limit communication between the protesters, the government put in place surprise restrictions on social media for the duration of the protests.
Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, and other sites and services were made totally inaccessible. While the protests remained peaceful, there were significant fears the could lead to violence. This event was a wake-up call for Alex. Throughout the protest, friends had trouble keeping one another up-to-date on the protest’s progress and keeping their family members in the loop about their safety.
With the increasing tendency of governments to restrict access to social media and malicious actors to monitor traffic over public networks, Alex decided to create a dedicated service to assist others who find themselves often using public Wi-Fi, travelling, or facing government censorship. That service is CMC VPN.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are my communications secure?
A: Yes. Your data is encrypted locally via the open source VPN client and transmitted to its destination via the VPN server. By design, individuals on your local network cannot view the content of the data you are transmitting across the Internet. Furthermore, the underlying software has been audited by third party penetration testers, including Radically Open Security and Cure53.
Q: Are the websites I visit private?
A: Yes. The VPN client utilizes a locally installed TAP driver to prevent DNS leakages. Depending on your client machine, your DNS queries are then routed through either the server’s DNS resolver, the Dyn Internet Guide, or OpenDNS, and we do not maintain logs of your DNS queries. We only record the total data utilized by the user.
Q: Is your service compatible with my device?
A: Our service is compatible with Windows, Android, Mac OS, iOS, and Linux.
Q: Is there a limit on the number of devices I can use?
A: No, but for security purposes you are only permitted to place your VPN on your own personal devices.
Q: What happens if I go over my data limit?
A: If you are on a limited plan, you will be charged $0.50 per GB of data in excess of your plan. For instance, if you use 14 GB of data on a 10 GB plan, you would be charged $4.5 for the month.

A: No. Unmetered means there is no hard cap on your data usage. Excessive usage may result in temporary suspension of your account, and repeated excessive usage may result in account termination.
