What is a VPN and what are its uses?
As more of daily life takes place through the internet, online privacy and security become even more important. A VPN, Virtual Private Network, can help you create a secure, private connection to the internet. It works by creating a “tunnel” between your device and the internet at large, and it protects you in two important ways:
- Concealing your true IP address. This protects your identity and obscures your location.
- Encrypting the traffic between you and your VPN provider so no one on your local network can decipher or modify it.
Check out five real-life examples in which you’d want a VPN on your device.
