VPN – What is it and Why You Should Use It

  • by

privacy with vpn

Privacy is a hot topic in the digital age more than ever before.

Whether it is protecting your personal information like social security number or bank account information or browsing habits, strangers having access to that information is potentially devastating and downright terrifying. A VPN can help protect your privacy.  VPN is an acronym that stands for Virtual Private Network.  Connecting to the internet through a VPN provides you with privacy and anonymity and even your ISP (Internet Service Provider) can’t tell who you are or what you are doing.

Connecting through a VPN not only protects your privacy but it also removes any Geo-blocked content you may be missing. VPNs are readily available for purchase (and some are even free!) and easy to setup and use.  One that was recently mentioned in PC Magazine is VPN Unlimited.  A few examples of free VPNs include TunnelBear, Hide Me, and Betternet. As always, if you wouldd like help with this or any other IT related services don’t hesitate to give Frankenstein a call.

Here’s a link to more information about free VPNs.
