Synthetic Snake Oil: Online Security Tips

DP77 Advantages of Virtual Private Networks

February 26, 2020

One of the best decisions that you can make to protect yourself when browsing the internet is using a VPN: a Virtual Private Network. I’ve mentioned this here and there in some of my strategies but have yet to explain them and just how powerful these are.


For starters, VPN technology all started when people wanted to protect their online activities and to maintain online confidentiality. Because of this goal, VPN is the precise answer to that desire and thus it’s built specifically for that purpose.


From this, it’s easy to see where you can get a VPN. That is through several businesses online that provide this tool. As soon as you buy it though, you’ll notice a lot of other distinct advantages. Here are some of them.


Firstly you’ll have enhanced security. A VPN’s job is to encrypt data and keep secure and it does that extremely well.


But some other advantages you might not have thought of are things like remote control and the ability to share files. Companies can get a VPN and use that store information that can be accessed remotely. On top of that you can share data for extended periods of time. It’s kind of like having your own personal cloud you can access in certain places and share it with whomever.


Another advantage is that you can bypass filters and unblock websites. If for some reason you were blocked by a website, a VPN allows you to bypass that. The same applies to Internet filters. This isn’t so common on the West, but this gets a lot of use in Eastern countries where censorship is rampant. As an extra measure you can even change your IP address to another country.


And finally, having a VPN will also improve efficiency and bandwidth of the network. Not only that, but it can also reduce costs too. By default, VPNs are not that expensive to maintain. And if you look to a service provider, you won’t have to worry about constant surveillance or setup.


A VPN is great for those who want more security and to protect themselves from hackers. By having a good VPN, you’ll not only improve your security, but also your overall internet experience.
