Should I use a VPN?
If you’re serious about your security and privacy, then, yes! Even if you have nothing to hide, do you like the idea of being watched and tracked?
A VPN is for everyone, but most strongly recommended if:
You regularly use public WiFi
These are not secure, and hackers use many methods to intercept your internet traffic. They can then steal your passwords and other confidential data, access your private photos, and even steal your identity.
You use file sharing services
Many ISPs try to limit file sharing services, like P2P (Peer-to-Peer). They restrict your choices and might even slow down your internet speed. Using a VPN makes it difficult for an ISP to detect your file downloads and uploads.
You’re a journalist or anyone who shares sensitive info
If you’re in a line of work that involves sending sensitive information, then protecting your data, identity, and information sources is essential.
