A virtual private network (VPN) is one of the most secure ways of protecting your digital data. Whereas anti-virus, firewalls and anti-malware software protect the data on your computer a VPN provides a secure and private tunnel for your data to travel through.
A VPN can be useful for securing offsite connections allowing you to prevent data intrusion when working away from your LAN (local area network). A VPN can even be used to secure public WI-FI connections such as coffee shops and hotels which is useful for creating a secure connection during important meetings.
VPN’s can also be used to hide your IP address. A Internet Protocol address is like a house address for your device and is easily accessed by outside agencies, most commonly to determine the country you are connecting from. It is also the first thing a hacker will attempt to acquire when attempting to hack your network.
