Glacier Core is a VPN built into Glacier Chat that leverages Glacier's moving network to provide data security, obfuscation, and privacy for all apps on your device. You can find out more information about Glacier Core here.

This feature is available ✔️ for: Plan: Pro, Enterprise, and Guardian Platform: Android and iOS

A Core profile is a configuration that instructs your phone to encrypt and send your data to one of Glacier's global entry nodes. Typically profiles are named after the geolocation of the entry node (i.e. Virginia, Frankfurt).
