Virtual Private Networks (VPN)’s are an important cyber security tool for those who want to stay private and secure online. Many applications we use or website we visit track our activity. Mostly we are tracked to collect and sell our browsing data or to use it to try to target us with ads. Sometimes it can be for more nefarious purposes like hacking our devices and gaining access to our accounts.
A VPN provides you a secure and encrypted tunnel for your online traffic to flow to restrict this access to your data. This is especially important if you’re using public wifi, if want to keep your browsing history private or are accessing personal or sensitive files. It is also extremely useful if you’re travelling out of the country and want to get access to your (or your kids) home Netflix library.
There are many VPN providers but this is the one that I use and am proud to represent as an affiliate. Visit their site to see if it’s right for you.
