How to Use Spyoff VPN for Bitlord?

While we all love being able to browse the web freely without any restrictions, it can sometimes be difficult to do this when you’re abroad. Whether you’re traveling for work or for pleasure, you often need to worry about your personal data being tracked by cybercriminals. One way of solving this problem is by using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) service. With a VPN service, all of your Internet traffic is rerouted through a secure connection to a remote server, which then sends it to the server you originally requested it from. This prevents any unwanted surveillance and gives you the privacy you need while abroad.

One of the more famous VPN services is called “Spyoff”, and it was originally designed for educational purposes. However, since its inception, the service has blown up in popularity and can now be found on nearly every computer, cell phone, and tablet that is connected to the Internet. For any web browser that is running on Windows or MacOS, you can download the Spyoff app and start using the service right away to encrypt all of your Internet traffic.

Let’s walk through how to use Spyoff VPN for Bitlord, a free, open-source, Ethereum-based, digital asset wallet that can be found on GitHub.

Step one: Install the wallet

You first need to download and install the Bitlord wallet on your computer or device. Fortunately, this step is incredibly simple because there are only a few commands you need to enter in order to get started using the tool. After you’ve installed the wallet, you’ll be able to visit their website from any connected device and begin using the service (Figure 1).

The installation process for the Bitlord wallet is pretty self-explanatory, and it shouldn’t take long to complete. Once the installation is finished, you’ll be able to access the dashboard where you can easily setup your VPN connection and begin using the service.

Step two: Log into your account

After you’ve installed the wallet, you’ll need to log into your account. This is as easy as entering the email address and password that you used to register for the service. You can also use this step to reset your password if you forget it.

Once you’re logged in, you’ll be able to see all of your account settings including your recently connected VPN server (Figure 2).

Step three: Configure your VPN connection

Now that you’ve logged into your account, you can easily access the settings menu where you can setup your VPN connection the way you prefer. You can use the OpenVPN protocol because it is open source and widely supported. Alternatively, you can choose to use a more secured and convenient option such as the L2TP/IPSec protocol.

Regardless of which VPN protocol you choose (or if you choose to configure one at all), the configuration wizard will guide you through the process of connecting to a VPN server and configuring the service to your liking (Figure 3).

Once your VPN connection is configured, you can test it by using the connect command. This command initiates a connection to your VPN server and will display a “connected” message to confirm the connection was successful (Figure 4).

Step four: Use the wallet

Once your VPN connection is up and running, you can use it to securely access the Internet and Bitlord’s server from any connected device. To demonstrate, we will use a free VPN service called IPVanish to connect to Blockchain.info, which is a popular site that provides useful information about the digital currency Ethereum. If you’re not sure what Ethereum is, feel free to look it up online before continuing.

You can access the dashboard on your device and click on the “Explore” tab to see a list of all the assets (Figure 5) and transactions (Figure 6) stored within the wallet. Because we want to visit Blockchain.info, we will click on the “Send” button to the right of the URL to begin the transaction. This button looks like this:

As you can see, once you click on the send button, you’ll be presented with a form where you can enter the amount you want to send and the recipient’s email address (Figure 7).

If everything is OK, the transaction will be completed and the amount you sent will be displayed along with a confirmation message (Figure 8).

Step five: Delete your account

If you’d like, you can visit the settings menu of your account and delete it entirely. This will remove all of your account’s data from the server and free up some space for future use. Alternatively, you can login with your email address and password to continue using the service without having to create a new account.

Creating an account with the Bitlord wallet is very easy to do, and it only takes a couple of clicks to get started using the service. However, if you decide that you no longer want to use the VPN or if it stopped working for some reason, all you need to do is delete the account and stop paying the bills. In order to do this, you’ll need to visit the settings menu for your account and click on the “Delete my account” button (Figure 9).

After you’ve clicked on the delete account button, you’ll be presented with a confirmation screen where you can select “Delete my account” or “Cancel” (Figure 10).

If you choose to delete your account, all of your data will be removed and you’ll have to login again to use the service. However, if you choose to continue, you’ll be presented with a dashboard where you can click on the “Settings” button to continue configuring your VPN connection (Figure 11).

Step six: Use the wallet without a VPN

Now that you’ve configured your VPN connection and have it running on your device, you can use the Bitlord wallet to send and receive Ethereum and other digital currencies without having to worry about your data being tracked.

To confirm this, let’s send some Ether to the Bitcoin Talk wallet and check our account to see the transaction reflected (Figure 12).

As you can see, in this case we didn’t use the VPN, so all of our Internet traffic is unencrypted and open to surveillance. If you want to keep your data secure while using the Bitlord wallet, you’ll need to connect to the VPN before using the service.

In addition to Bitcoin and Ethereum, the service also supports over a hundred other digital currencies and allows you to store your coins in a “watch only” capacity, which means you can set a password and restrict access to them. For more information on the different types of wallets supported by the service, check out their website.
