When should you use VPN

A VPN masks your IP address and routes your traffic through a second server, making your online experience considerably safer. A VPN could be useful in the following situations:

When utilizing public Wi-Fi, be cautious.

A VPN is recommended when using a public Wi-Fi network, even if it is password-protected. It is simple for a hacker to snoop on your data if they are on the same Wi-Fi network as you. The minimal security provided by the ordinary public Wi-Fi network is insufficient to protect users from other users on the same network.


Using a VPN will give your data an added layer of security by bypassing the ISP of public Wi-Fi and encrypting all of your communications.


When you're on the road.


If you're visiting a foreign nation, such as China, where sites like Facebook are restricted, a VPN can enable you get access to services that aren't available there.


Because of international rights difficulties, the VPN will often allow you to use streaming services that you paid for and have access to in your own country but are not available in another. You can access the service as if you were at home by using a VPN. When using a VPN, travelers may be able to locate cheaper flight because rates differ by area.


When you're working from home.


This is particularly true in the post-COVID era, when many people work remotely. For security concerns, many businesses mandate the usage of a VPN to access company services remotely. When you are not in the office, a VPN that connects to your office's server might provide you access to internal company networks and resources. While you're out and about, it can do the same for your home network.


When you just want to be alone.


Even if you're accessing the internet for regular activities from the comfort of your own home, a VPN might be beneficial. When you visit a website, the server that you connect to logs your IP address and associates it with everything else the site can learn about you: your surfing habits, what you click on, and how long you spend on each page. They can sell this information to advertising companies, which will use it to personalize ads for you. This is why online advertisements might feel uncomfortably intimate at times: they are. Even if your location services are turned off, your IP address can be used to trace your whereabouts. You may avoid leaving traces by using a VPN.


Don't forget about your mobile devices. They, too, have IP addresses, and you probably use them in more places than just your home computer, such as public Wi-Fi hotspots. When connecting to a network you don't entirely trust, it's a good idea to utilize a VPN on your phone.
