Why choose VPN?

To understand the importance of having a VPN, you need to understand what it offers and how it works. Basically, using a VPN all Internet traffic is transmitted to a server in a different location than yours.

This makes your connection appear to be being made from somewhere totally different from where you are. That is, making your online life more anonymous, therefore, safer, by preventing personal data from being accessed.

In addition to the security and ease of accessing resources remotely, a VPN has several protocols to provide a secure connection. Not counting the protection against spyware and viruses that are usually already included in the chosen service. Aside from that most providers also already include protection for mobile devices.

Did you know that virtual private networks are legal? 

Yes, VPNs are almost certainly legal where you live. If you are not using it to break the law, there should be no problems with downloading and using a VPN.

If you live in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, EU, South America or Africa, you can use virtual private networks. There are some exceptions where VPNs can be banned or restricted.

Belarus, Iraq, North Korea, and Turkmenistan have a firm ban on using VPNs. Countries such as China, Russia, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates have VPN restrictions (specific use cases are allowed).

A VPN is a great tool for protecting yourself from intrusive government surveillance, bypassing censorship, and undermining geographic restrictions. However, it is important that you familiarize yourself with local laws and remember that using a VPN for illegal purposes is illegal anywhere.

How can a VPN make everyday life easier?

Check out here a list of facilities obtained by having a VPN!

1 – Remote access for businesses

As mentioned, VPN is very useful within enterprises, allowing users to use the internal tools of the corporate network out of the office. Thinking about employees who work traveling or at home, the user does not limit how they can work, not affecting their production and ensuring the security of the data entered.

2 – Navigate anonymously and ensure additional security

Because of the ability to “camouflage” your location, VPN access allows you to browse the web anonymously. This ensures an extra layer of security, especially if you have the habit of using public connections regularly. Even using wi-fi from public places, VPN increases your security against spammers and hackers, as against virtual harassment.

This is because it allows browsing on a separate server from the public network. VPNs have a high level of data encryption, making it almost impossible for a hacker to access your information.

3 – Dribbling geoblocking

Geoblocking is the location lock, which restricts the content of Internet according to the geographic location of the navigator. With VPN it is possible to unlock Netflix , for example, and access all content limited by geoblocking. This is especially useful for those who travel extensively abroad and access streaming and on-demand services. With this service, you can watch your favorite TV shows from your home country, or even test a new app or feature that is only limited to one region.

4 – Dribbling content censorship

It is not only the geoblocking that limits the content accessed, but many countries also have censorship measures that block social media channels and monitor navigation. In China, for example, the only way to access Wikipedia and Facebook is through a virtual private network, as both sites are banned in the country.

By using the best VPN for China, in addition to circumventing geographic censorship, you navigate anonymously without being monitored. In addition, it allows you to access blocked sites on public networks such as schools or work, blocking social networks, streaming videos, etc.

In such cases, while possible, consider the consequences you may face if you are caught ignoring the content restrictions of your school or work, for example, even if the chances are very small.

5 – Use and increase the speed of downloads by torrent

Regardless of whether you download legal content, the download via torrent may be blocked by some Internet services or make the download speed extremely slow. Through VPN, the user remains secure when using the peer to peer file transfer networks and ends the download block. This also causes the transfer speed to be higher.

There are many myths about using VPNs. But as you have seen here, it is very important to ensure your privacy, security, and protection of your personal data, even when accessing public networks. Then, search for trusted vendors, and avoid choosing one that collects the user’s information log and ensures 100% anonymous access.

Avoid using free providers as they tend to record your online activities and show multiple ads. This is inefficient for anyone looking for a VPN because of privacy and security.
