Questions We Usually Get
What is a VPN?
A virtual private network (VPN) is a mobile app or software that establishes a secure, encrypted connection between your device and the internet. Instead of sending your data and browsing activity directly to your internet service provider (ISP), a VPN routes your traffic first through one of hundreds or thousands of its own VPN servers around the world. When your data is then transmitted to the internet, it is then coming from the VPN server, as opposed to your personal device so your identity is protected.
Why do I need a VPN?
Without a VPN, your IP address (which is unique to your network) is visible to the web and your data is more at risk. Public Wi-Fi networks, such as those in coffee shops, airports, and public areas can be particularly risky. A hacker connected on the same network can easily spy on your activity. Using a VPN at home will also protect your identity, your data and your activity from hackers and hide it from your internet service provider, governments, corporations and advertisers. A VPN will also enable you to access certain websites or content when you need to be located in a particular country.
What should I look for in a VPN?
There are several factors to consider when searching for the best VPN. We have listed some of the primary features above to compare our recommended VPNs.
Should I use free VPNs?
No, it might be best to avoid free VPNs. It’s important to be aware that many free VPNs are not as secure as they may claim. These services often have limited data plans, no encryption, and low security protocols which can leave your device vulnerable to malicious software or hackers. Also, some of these services may collect information about you for advertising purposes and even sell it to third parties.
Should I leave my VPN on all the time?
The short answer is yes. VPNs are designed to provide a secure and private connection, so it’s best to leave them on all the time, even when you’re not actively using them. This way, all of your online activity remains encrypted and protected from potential cyber threats. But also know that leaving your VPN on will use up battery life more quickly as opposed to turning it off when not in use. This is because the VPN constantly encrypts and decrypts the data sent to and from your device. If you’re worried about running out of battery life quickly, you may want to consider turning off your VPN when it’s not in use.
