Why You Must Need A VPN To Protect Your Online Privacy? by sarahprice: 2:47pm On Apr 04, 2019
Have you wondered why data breaches have become so common? People are becoming victims of data robberies and the only reason that makes the case even more complicated is that "user-agreement" you sign whenever you visit a site or download an app. You agree to share your private data with the site owners which eventually leads to the cyber threats and ransomware attacks you may face. Since, data that you share with your consent is what they want to sell and the third-party companies need data to sell their products and show annoying ads to your screens. Secondly, comes your ISP providers who are very much anticipated to know what sites you visit, your browsing history, chats you engage in, and communities you participate in. So, if you are worried about your ISP snooping on you? Is someone on your coffee shop? Wi-Fi looking your network shoulder? Or, is Joe A Hacker bugging your internet? A virtual private network (VPN) can help protect your privacy.

A VPN uses encryption technologies, such as IP security (IPSec), Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) / IPSec, and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), and Transport Layer Security (TLS), to create a virtual encrypted "tunnel" between your device and a VPN server. While you are working on VPN server, you can see what you're doing. To secure your internet connection now, Go Buy VPN and stay protected online.
