VPN stands for “Virtual Private Network”, and it really is a great tool to have nowadays. VPN’s can serve several purposes, and two of the main ones purposes are: it can help you watch TV shows even if you are in an unauthorized location and it can help to protect your data when you are using free public wifi.
Basically, a good VPN will hide your true location, for both your own convenience and privacy. I would recommend reading this article by PC Mag to really understand what a VPN does, and why it is necessary.
There are many VPN options out there such as Nord VPN, Surfshark, etc. There are different VPN’s because not all users need the same type of features. Features such as amount of people who can simultaneously use the VPN, data encryption, location services, etc. will vary, so be sure to research which VPN best suits your needs. Ultimately, I choose to use ExpressVPN because it has great security features, it allows for 5 simultaneous connections on different devices, and has many server locations. At around $10 a month or so, it is one of the most expensive VPN’s out there. However, for VPN’s, you often get what you pay for (cheaper VPN’s still work but have less features, options, security, etc.).
Express VPN works on almost any type of device: Iphone, Ipad, Mac, so I would recommend it for anyone who uses the Internet often. It may take a little time to get adjusted to using a VPN, but it can help to protect you in the long run.
Be sure to check out what VPN would work best for you, and maybe you will end up getting ExpressVPN also!
