The following is a Plus Edition article written by and copyright by Dick Eastman.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is the easiest way to obtain a fast, private, and SECURE Internet connection.
Do you work online from coffee shops or hotels? Do you travel and take a laptop, tablet or smartphone with you to use online? Do you perhaps travel internationally? I often travel internationally (I am in Ireland at the moment), and I always use a VPN when traveling, whether I am in the U.S. or overseas.
Actually, using a VPN while at home is also a good idea. After all, do you know if one of your neighbors is possibly monitoring all the data you send and receive? Then again, we all know that the NSA is monitoring everything we send and receive online.
Unless you are using a VPN (virtual private network), nothing you do online is private. A VPN encrypts and protects everything you do online, and can be downloaded as an app on your phone or computer.
Protect yourself from people stealing your credit card info, your Gmail login credentials, or (worst of all) getting blocked from watching the latest episode of Game of Thrones.
You need to be using a VPN if you:
- Connect to unsecured Wi-Fi networks (such as from airports, hotel rooms, or coffee shops)
- Visit sites you’d rather keep private
- Make online purchases (don’t get your debit card hacked)
- Watch movies from Netflix or “Who Do You Think You Are?” UK edition or other video services from countries that are normally blocked from those sites
- Legally use bit torrent and want to keep your downloads private
- Or travel to places with internet censorship
Don’t let your web browser’s incognito mode fool you. Incognito mode is a good thing, but it only offers partial security. You NEED to be using a VPN.
A VPN provides a secure connection between your computer and the VPN servers. All communications between your computer and the VPN are encrypted and sent through a secure tunnel over the Internet, preventing outsiders from spying on your web activity. You can securely connect to a VPN service and surf the web from the VPN service’s servers, using their IP addresses.
There are lots of reasons to use a VPN service, such as establishing a secure connection over an insecure network, accessing censored or region specific web content, or protecting your bank account information or credit card numbers when using them online.
