Step-by-step quick tips how to keep your email, credit cards information, web pages and other pieces of digital world secured and protected by means of Virtual Personal Network.



Why VPN is the safest and affordable way to stay secured in the Web? The Internet can be quite a tricky place, full of data sniffers or even hackers; all of them are seeking for a weakness to exploit, thus, you put your privacy in jeopardy every time you connect to a new, unsecured hotspot or even a network in your own place.

What is VPN

Virtual Private Network or VPN provides you confidence by being anonymous in the Web. It does not matter if you want to protect your e-mails from one’s eye or if you want to encrypt your credit cards’ details or, for instance, you want to visit websites which are protected by the government — VPN is able to cover all of these needs, minimizing chances to hack you down on the Web.Here’s more info about online threat.



VPN was only used  by companies, but it took only a few months for this technology to be spread among many private customers.



How to setup VPN at home or in your office



There are three easy steps you could follow to protect your connection by means of VPN:



Step 1: Let’s start with your device. Are you looking for Virtual Personal Network for your personal computer at home? Then check out some all-in-one devices or application which will maintain stable and reliable VPN connection. Such system can generate VPN not only for a single device, but for several devices in your office or at home.



Step 2: Once you’ve setup your VPN, check it out for available locations to connect. We recommend to choose locations which are in your country, ideally, if VPN is located closely to you (up to 500 km). However, sometimes test several locations to get a better understanding which one works better for you. Sometimes there could be exceptions, a VPN for Germany could work better for you even though you are in India. Moreover, if you need to visit a website which is not available in your country, you will need to choose another location which suits your needs.



Step 3: Enjoy secured Web-surfing. With VPN you are able to check e-mails, work on documents and sheets online, surf food any goods in the Web and buy them without any hesitations to be hacked. VPN is a godsend for everybody who’s looking for a budget-friendly solution to stay protected and connected at the same time.
