What is a VPN?
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network.
This allows you to create a secure and anonymous connection on the internet.
It is a good idea to use a VPN when you are connected to Public networks like Coffee Shops, Schools, Work etc.
Being connected to a Public network can create vulnerabilities with your private information.
It can allow someone to access your private files such as pictures, videos, files and most important credit card and financial information.
Everything you’re doing online and search history can be tracked if you are not protected.
That being said now with many laws changing we recommend you use a VPN even in your own home.
Congress passed a law where your ISP(internet provider) can sell your search history without your consent.
ISP providers (Cox, Comcast, Time Warner, Century Link etc) are some of many that sell your private information.
When you connect to a VPN you can choose where in the world you want to connect therefore making you anonymous on the web.
You can use VPN on essentially anything like laptops, cell phones, Android devices.
Block unwanted and unprotected connections from your devices
Hide your IP address and protect yourself from data leaks.
It’s very easy to use a VPN on your devices.
There are some free versions of VPN’s but they don’t offer all of the features the good ones do.
The company we use allows you to download the service on all your devices.
Get protected with a small monthly fee!
What is small $3 fee to protect your information right?
I personally use one when I’m connected to any network so all of my information is encrypted and I never have to worry about being hacked or my information being sold to the wrong people.
The paid versions of VPN can be used on multiple devices simultaneously so you don’t have to pay for each one.
You can connect many of your devices with the same account.
Where can you find VPN services?
We recommend a highly trusted company called PrivateInternetAccess.
Access this VPN on with Android APP, Apple, Microsoft, IOS APP and more.
