You may have heard about VPNs and wondered what it was and do you need one. There’s a lot to VPNs, but here are the basics:
VPN = Virtual Private Network
A VPN creates a “tunnel” between your computer/mobile and the other location you want to communicate with, such as your bank. It protect your data from hackers. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, this image explains what a VPN does.
Do you need a VPN?
If you want to protect the information you are sending through the internet (passwords, bank info, etc.) then you need one.
How do you get a VPN?
You might already have one installed on your computer/mobile. If you have a virus protection program, such as Norton 360, there is a good possibility that it has a VPN feature. You just need to turn it on.
If you don’t already have a VPN provider then consider one of the highly rated VPNs currently available. If you need help, let me know.
