What is VPN?
Virtual Private Network, allows you to create a secure connection to another network over the Internet. VPNs can be used to access region-restricted websites, shield your browsing activity from prying eyes on public Wi-Fi, and more.
Why should I use a VPN?
When you’re on the move and use free or unfamiliar networks such as in airports, hotels or cafes, you’re opening yourself up to your data being observed and potentially stolen. This is especially true if you visit web addresses using “http”, not “https”, or access an email account using unsafe protocols. A VPN allows you to go online through a secure connection even when you’re on an unsecure network.
