    Lightbulb Why you must need a VPN to protect your online privacy?

    A VPN (Virtual Private Network) that might need your foremost attention has it's own ways of protecting your data. However, the need to have a VPN installed on your devices and routers must require a brief to make a choice as per your specific needs. As obvious, some of us might know that a VPN helps secure the web traffic and protect your online privacy from spying, spoofing and eavesdropping by adding a highly secure shield that stops anyone from stealing or monetizing your data with or without your consent.

    In other words, a VPN creates a virtual encrypted tunnel between your device and the server network of the VPN and all external traffic from the internet is directed through this secure tunnel to reduce the probability of getting your data compromised. It changes your IP address to a different VPN server location by masking your original IP address.

    Now, Why you need a VPN?

    To conceive the true value of a VPN, it will help by looking at some specific examples in which a VPN might be useful. Consider the public Wi-Fi network, perhaps at a coffee shop or airport. Normally, you might connect without a second thought. But do you know who might be spying or monitoring the data traffic on that network? Can you even be sure the Wi-Fi network is trust-worthy, or might it be run by a thief who's after your personal data? Think about the vulnerabilities like your passwords, banking data, credit card numbers, and just plain private information that you transmit every time you go online.

    Now, If you connect to that same public Wi-Fi network through a service like Ivacy VPN or any other VPN client, you can rest assured that no one on that network will be able to intercept your data or users snooping around to victimize, nor even the operators of the network itself. This last point is particularly important, and everyone should keep in mind that it's very difficult to tell whether or not a Wi-Fi network is what it appears to be. Just because it's called KFC_WiFi doesn't mean it's really owned by them.

    Another scenario showing the essential value of VPNs is using these services to access blocked websites. Some governments have decided in their best interest that they need to block certain websites from access by all members of the population. With a VPN, people can have their web traffic securely tunneled to a different country with more progressive policies, and access sites that would otherwise be blocked. And again, because VPNs encrypt your traffic, it helps protect the identity of people who connect to the open internet in this way.

    VPN is very much useful to protect your online privacy as it helps to make you anonymous while browsing and hackers will not be able to hack you. Remember to buy the best vpn and purevpn and nordvpn are the good choice to use. To pick between these two read our purevpn vs nordvpn blog.

    Strictly speaking VPN will simply encrypt your traffic from the usual prying eyes (ISP as an example) but NOT from the VPN provider. It is NOT a solution for anonymity.

    It is the most important when you are talking about online security and privacy that you just need a good and reliable VPN that can give you whitelisted IP to give you 100% online security. according to my suggestion is that you can use fastestvpn, there is no dns leak issue and also you can found internet kill switch on it which never showing your identification on internet and secure when your internet is disabled.

    Okay. In this whole thread, this comment according to me stand the strongest amongst all. You cannot trust any VPN provider at all. I remember when their was a rumor against NordVPN regarding that Tesonet thing. And the same data leaks and transparency issues were raised against PureVPN too. You don't know whether the VPN provider really keeps your data log and pass to the oficials or not. It is hard to judge whether these VPN providers stick to their policy. I was reading this NordVPN vs PureVPN blog and both the VPN had the same logs issue in the past. But no doubt about it that NordVPN never fails to impress its customers.

    I am on the lookout for a VPN service which provides maximum encryption and is fast at the same time. I have shortlisted Ivacy VPN and ExpressVPN, but not sure which one to choose. Kindly assist me in this matter. Thank You.

    i would definitely avoid Ivacy VPN, so if you have shortlisted expressvpn as your only other option, i would go with that.
    expressvpn is much faster and probably a lot more secure.
    i'm sure you'll do some research and defunct my opinion though.
