    Hi all, recently I tried the xb browser after giving the $1 month a go to asses the service. I noticed when going onto some sites the xb browser gives you a warning that you are leaving an encrypted page and a third party may be able to watch, I thought all traffic was encrypted when the VPN was running?

    JB007,

    When you visit a site that has it's own encryption, and then leave for a site that doesn't, you get that pop warning to remind you.

    All the traffic from you to our VPN is encrypted and anonymized before it reaches your destination, evading spying by gov, ISP, boss, etc. Once our network talks to you your destination website for you, it can only be additionally encrypted if that website supports it (https). That provides additional end-to-end encryption that prevents even XB from being able to see what traffic is going to that website.

    Yes everything is encrypted its just warning you are going from a ssl page to non encrypted page, with a vpn everything is encrypted until it leaves xerobanks server,the beauty in this is even if someone intercepts your data they don't no who it is cause its coming from xerobanks ip not yours.
