Highlights of the Story

  • VPN can be very helpful to access websites that are blocked in your region or by your ISP
  • VPN can help enhance your privacy and security by hiding your original IP address from the websites that you visit
  • A VPN will provide you additional security while browsing from a public internet access point such as Starbucks or KFC

VPN is like a relay between your internet connection and the website that you are trying to access. A VPN will route all your internet traffic through another network, this allows you to hide your original IP address from the website that you are trying to visit.

VPN also helps you prevent your data from getting breached while using a public network. This can come very handy for people who often browse on public Wi-Fi connections that multiple users have access to. VPNs can also be used to unblock websites that are restricted by your internet service provider or blocked in your region.

There are so many elements to consider before choosing the right VPN for you, there are hundreds or even thousands of options available in the market right now which can make it overwhelming to choose from.

Cost: While Paid VPNs offer a much better quality of service without intrusive advertisements, speed or data throttling, not everybody would be interested in signing up for an additional subscription. Paid VPNs offer much more privacy and security features and they are certainly a better option if your privacy and security is important

Privacy: The best VPNs in the market keep zero connection and activity logs such as the NordVPN and Express VPN. Other VPN options that are cheaper and less secure might choose to keep the connection logs so it depends on your choice with respect to the privacy

Location: This is an important aspect as your internet speed and the responses depend on the location of your VPN provider, most offerings come with multiple server locations, however, it is important to ensure that you have a server close to your most accessed location to ensure the best experience

Security: While most premium offerings come with good security features, these might be different on some VPNs. Express VPN adds IPv6 and DNS leak protection while NordVPN goes an extra step for obfuscation and Double VPN, there are some providers who compromise a little on the security which can pay off on a long run

Ease of use: Most VPN services these days are very easy to set up, you will get a user account and can sign in with the account on multiple devices to get access to the VPN services and improve your browsing experience.
