As the world keeps evolving, technology is also evolving, leading to an increase in cybercrime.
As much as there is an increase in cybercrime, we can’t because of this stop using the internet, instead, we find a way to use them and yet stay safe and secure.
VPN (Virtual Private Network) has provided a safer connection to use the internet by creating a private way for data to travel safely between one’s device and the VPN server, yet stay secure without fear of anyone getting to read your data.
After getting to understand what VPN is all about, It’s important to know how it works. A VPN works by converting information or data into a code (to prevent unauthorized access) that can only be understood by your device and a remote server operated by the VPN provider.
VPN offers the best protection against online hackers and helps browse privately with the assurance that your internet activities are hidden from intruders. It makes it impossible for anyone to find your IP(internet protocol address) by showing the IP address of the VPN server
How to set up a VPN
- Step 1: Download and install the VPN tool on your device
- Step 2: Choose a VPN server and connect
- Step 3: Activate the VPN client on your device. This establishes a connection to a remote VPN server operated by the VPN provider.
Once the coded data arrives at the VPN server, it changes into an understandable language and is sent on to its intended destination, such as a website, online service, etc. When data is been send back to one’s device, it goes through the same process in reverse
By using VPN, you can enjoy a more secure and private internet experience, without the fear of your personal information getting into the wrong hands. Because your online activities are protected from surveillance and monitoring by hackers or third parties.
