What can VPNs do for you?
First of all, what is a VPN? Virtual Private Network or VPN is pretty self explanatory. It’s virtual because there is no hardware for it and it is just something that is simulated online. It’s private because it gives you a private connection over the public internet. Lastly, a network. Because it’s a system of “virtual” computers that allows you to create a connection to other networks.
Now that VPNs are becoming a thing, it’s very important that we consumers know how it works and how does it help you.
Let’s break it down into a few simple points. Here are a few reasons why VPN is a NEED in this age of technology:
- It allows you to create a secure connection to another network over the Internet.
- It protects your data from hackers.
- It gives you access to restricted content that is not available in your country.
So now that you know these benefits, you need to understand how it works so you can use VPNs to its full potential.
When you connect your device to a public network A.K.A. Free Public Wifi, you are basically giving those hackers out there a pathway to your personal data/information that is stored in your device. This is where your VPN comes in. Your VPN encrypts the data before it goes through the public network. Then, the data goes into the VPN servers online before it goes to the internet. There are a lot of different VPN server locations depending on the VPN that you have. Because of these different VPN server locations, hackers cannot trace where your data is coming from, therefore they cannot trace and follow the data path back to your device. Hence, no hacking.
