Frequently Asked Questions
We are still working on the MAC version but hope to finish before our first shipment in 2015.Last updated:
There is no cost to continue using the USB and private browser. The price for the VPN and Cloud services combined is only $5.99/month or $71.88/year after the free year is finished. The beauty is you get both the VPN service and the unlimited cloud backup, both your MAC and PC for one low price of $5.99/mo. We are working to distribute registration key cards to local retailers so that you can purchase these anonymously and register to continue use of the VPN and cloud services.
We believe the price is extremely competitive and disruptive, but our ultimate goal is to make everything available for $1.99 to $2.99 per month. This can happen if we break a million user subscribers. We hope to reach this goal with everyone's help.Last updated:
1. Serial keys are generated from an encrypted key software in bulk of 10,000 to 50,000 at a time and sent to a printer.
2. The printer hides the serial keys (very similar to calling cards) on the back of the cards and no one knows which cards have which serial keys.
3. Registration key is then randomly inserted to each Wemagin package to be shipped to register the Wemagin.
4. User can registers Wemagin with an existing or non verifiable email / username as an option.
5. Once a serial key is used, it is then moved from online to offline database, never to be reused or retrievable by anyone.
6. Wemagin is now neither traceable by Wemagin or anyone else since we don't know what the serial key that registered the new account, but even if we did, if you registered with a non verifiable email / username, it's impossible for anyone to know.Last updated:
You can still use the private browser, which leaves no digital footprint on the computer and the USB device. You can also use the USB as a storage device, but it only holds 4GB, and there wouldn't be any protection unless you save the files in the secured cloud storage. USB flash drive storage by itself is unreliable and limited in protecting our data. It's this very reason why we integrated the Wemagin to the cloud storage.
Because we will not store credit card information on file, to continue the VPN and cloud integration, a new subscription would have to be purchased. We are working to distribute registration key cards to local retailers so that you can purchase these anonymously and register to continue use of the VPN and cloud services.Last updated:
Yes there will be, and we intend to continue support of our product. If any new virus comes along or a new bug is discovered, we will do an auto update to the device.Last updated:
6. WHERE ARE THE VPN SERVERS LOCATED? AM I ABLE TO CHOOSE WHICH VPN SERVER I'M CONNECTING TO? ALSO, WHAT KIND OF LOGS ARE KEPT ON THE SERVER AND HOW DO YOU PLAN TO HANDLE GOVERNMENT REQUEST FOR USER DATA?
We have over 14,000 IP's on 135+ servers in many countries that you can choose from. We do not collect or log any traffic on our VPN. We are working on a system to prepay for the VPN with cash in order to avoid collecting any user information if needed.Last updated:
What separates Wemagin's VPN from all other VPN is as follows:
1. Wemagin is the simplest and easiest VPN to use. Our VPN is a plug and play, where as others require a lot more complicated setup.
2. Other VPN require a software or client download to a computer. Wemagin does not. Wemagin requires nothing from the computer to operate.
3. Other VPN may hide the IP address, but it still leaves a digital footprint on the computer. Wemagin does not - not on the internet, not on the computer, not on the device.Last updated:
8. THE ARTICLE "The Unpatchable Malware That Infects USBs Is Now on the Loose" POINTS OUT SOME PROBLEMS WITH THE USB. IS THERE ANY SAFEGUARD(S) TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING TO WEMAGIN?
This is one of the problems we're still working on. We're close but not ready to announce anything just yet. We've done so much testing on this and it's been quite challenging. We won't give up until it's resolved. Hopefully by the time we're ready to ship, it’s resolved.Last updated:
9. WILL WEMAGIN'S VPN BLOCK MY ISP FROM SEEING MY ACTIVITY AND ALLOW TORRENT DOWNLOADING TO BE ANONYMOUS?
With Wemagin's VPN, your ISP will only see encrypted information, and it’s not something they can decrypt because high military-grade encryption is being used.
Also, if you choose to do any downloading of torrents, you are completely anonymous and coupled with our very fast ISP, you will see very little throttle with your downloads regardless of what you are doing. If you choose to watch a Netflix movie while downloading, for example, you have nothing to worry about because to that ISP, you are not watching Netflix so there is no throttling. You can even play W.O.W. or stream online with minimal impact!Last updated:
Yes, in essence, the cloud backs up all the data you selected to back up, and it restores everything you want. If you accidentally delete something you need from your computer, you will have the option to restore the latest version saved to the cloud server. If you have a virus and it damaged any files in the system, you can retrieve a copy of that file. Our system is set up to make additional shadow copies, up to 30 times over.Last updated:
Our state of the art servers are in Europe and is coupled with very fast ISP’s.Last updated:
We have to cooperate with the government, but what separates Wemagin from all other cloud storage providers is our registration key required to setup the account and the unverified email/username combined together make it very difficult, if not impossible to trace the individual's account holder. What connects the user to the account holder are the credit card trail, an active email, cookies/caches left on the computer, and the IP address history. Without knowing the users email or username, there is no way to know which of the thousands to potentially millions of account holders who is who.Last updated:
For the average user, there is a 15% speed reduction from your highest speed. max upload speed is 12mbps and max download speed 45mbps for our VPN speed. Wcloud on backup is 1.55 to 8 mbps on upload and download is 5mbps to 15mbps on average.Last updated:
The speed of our ISP's to deliver content is unmatched. if you decide to game with the VPN enabled you will get very little to no lag. TOR has to rely on relays (swarm depended) in order to deliver speed, if you fail to configure your client correctly with tor. All your IP information is given away. With Wemagin you don't have to worry about configurations or software you have to use. Wemagin just works out of the box.Last updated:
How do we secure ourselves and still be able to make the bad guys insecure. As with most things human, we are in the position of the old saying that "perfection is the enemy of the good." As microscopes and telescopes became better and better, scientists became able to delve deeper into our bodies and deeper into space.. WEMAGIN is good. very good. But it is not perfect as we, as everyone, are only as good as the latest technology. WEMAGINE is leading the way in developing a device that protect's privacy. The debate now is how much freedom do we need to enable liberty to work, and how, in taking freedom away do we damage our liberty?
The reason WEMAGIN will continue to delve deeper into the problem is precisely because of what you have written about terrorists (or idnetify thieves in general). I'm sure you have seen the reports of countries that have millions of hackers set up to penetrate other government and corporate computer systems. Our goal is to keep a step ahead of them. The bad guys will always be working angles in their favor and looking fo rways to get around detection or prevent detection. As long as there are bad guys this problem will be with us.
We are working hard at WEMAGIN to ensure our customers that their data will be safe from terrorists and identify thieves. We leave it to those charged with our homeland security to figure out how to beat the bad guys at their own game so that as we help our customers protect their data our good guys are figuring out to both prevent their intrusion while figuring how to intrude the systems of the bad guys.
As a result, our customers will be more secure and the bad guys less dangerous. There was an interesting piece a year ago about how "Teens prepare for cyberwar" at events like the CyberLympics, CyberPatriot contest or 'Toster Wars,' sponsored by the National security Agency. Geeks are now "in", and thus we see that "these high school geek squads are competing to see who does the best job at preventing unauthorized computer intrusions.
As stated last year, "This growing snterests in cyberdefense comes at a time when the Pentagon officials are warning against damaging computer attacks from China and other nations, while stoking concerns that the United States education system hasn't trained enough cyber-warriors to protect either military or civilian computer systems." Our cyber coin has two sides: prevention of intrusion and the ability to intrude. We believe the high tech of our cyber security will penetrate the bad guys while WEMAGINE prevents the bad guys from intruding our customers. WEMAGIN is delighted to be able to help in this cyber battle, helping to strengthen our side and weaken theirs.Last updated:
16. SOME COUNTRIES BLOCK HULU AND NETFLIX. DOES WEMAGIN ALLOW ME TO WATCH VIDEOS THERE? IN HD SPEEDS?
Wemagin’s VPN removes restrictions from your internet, allowing you to view content in various countries. With our very fast VPN ,you can watch content in HD, assuming you have the speed on your own internet to satisfy the demand for the content.Last updated:
