What is a VPN?

A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is a secure internet access point on a remote server that you connect to before connecting to the internet. It offers encrypted data transmission and anonymity to keep your internet activities and identity safe and anonymous. Most internet users aren’t even familiar with the features of VPN’s or perhaps think they are just for hackers and other undesirables, but the truth of the matter is that nearly everyone would benefit from the added security of a VPN.


Here’s the best news: VPN service is not only easy to use (basically one click access once it’s set up) but it’s also extremely affordable. Most VPN services are priced between $5-$15 dollars per month, which is just a fraction of the price of your wireless phone bill.
