No, izzbie ONE is not a router. It is a physical device that acts as a gateway to your home network. It connects to your router at home and creates a private tunnel for you to connect to your home network through the izzbie app.
It's a lot easier to set up and use than VPN router. Once you link up the izzbie ONE device with your user account, you would be able to connect to it using any device that runs on Windows, Android, iOS, and macOS using the izzbie app. It also works on Android tv box!
The major different is that VPN routers only allow users to access one network at a time with what is commonly referred to as a hub-and-spoke configuration. izzbie allows users to create a mesh network with multiple networks so users can connect to all of the networks simultaneously with one single login.
Besides that, izzbie is a lot easier to setup. It does not require a static IP to connect to a home or office network. It identifies the user account and uses a unique token to login every time.
We use Software Defined Network(SDN) technology that allows users to create a Virtual Mesh Private Network with any number of their home and office networks. Common VPN services use public proxy servers to relay your data.
No, izzbie ONE does not work like a hotspot device and would not provide internet data on its own. You would need to use wifi or phone data to connect to it.
However, connecting to your izzbie ONE at home would encrypt your data when you use public wifi to protect your privacy.
Not at all.
izzbie ONE connects to your router at home with an ethernet cable. When you are out and about, you can connect to it using the izzbie app installed on your mobile devices.
Unlike other VPN products on the market, there is no extra hardware to carry.
You can connect from anywhere with a working internet connection.
There are a few commonly used VPN protocols to establish a private tunnel such as OpenVPN. These protocols are easily identified by the websites and authorities that block VPN data traffic. We use our proprietary protocol which is not affected by common VPN blocks. It gives users better access to geolocation restricted internet contents.
Our system uses an advanced Direct Link Technology to establish a private tunnel (encrypted) connection between you and your home networks. We are not able to see, process, or collect any user data. The only data we receive would be your user info when you sign up for the account. Moreover, we use it according to our privacy agreement.
Yes, izzbie would work anywhere in the world as long as there is a working internet connection. Once you install an izzbie ONE device at your home. You would be able to access your home network when you travel to any country.
Your data would be encrypted when you connect though izzbie. And your geolocation can be set to your home location, which means you would be able to see the web contents in your home region.
Mesh wifi network and virtual mesh network are two completely different concepts.
A mesh wifi network is a mesh of wifi signals designed to cover most areas inside a network.
On the other hand, izzbie ONE allows users to create a virtual mesh network with multiple homes and office networks.
The "mesh" in the former refers to the wifi signal inside a home network, while in the latter (izzbie ONE) it refers to multiple home networks.
