Hello Everyone, today I’m gonna be discussing about a very essential topic for everyone in this technological world. It is necessary that we use it for our security purposes. It is VPN. The video walkthrough of this post is also available.
WHAT IS A VPN
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. It enables the feature for us to connect to a virtual tunnel server which is available in foreign countries through the Private/Public Network. When we are connected to the VPN tunnel server, we’ll be completely Anonymous and nobody can track us even on the Public Network. We’ll be seeing a more detailed concept on our Security Aspects Heading.
HOW TO CHOOSE A RELIABLE VPN
So, You came to know about the VPN and it’s uses. Now one question will be arising in your mind that what are the best and reliable VPNS available in the market and how to choose it? There are many different considerations according to the people in choosing a VPN. Some people need Privacy more than anything. Some need to visit the blocked sites for Movie Downloads etc.
Using some VPNS will also be blocked by streaming services like Netflix, Prime and Hotstar etc. So you need to use a block-free VPN. Let me list out to you the considerations before you get a VPN:
- Server Speed
- Privacy Protection
- Good Quality Encryption
- Cross Platform
So I hope this variety of considerations will narrow down your search of VPN even more further.
SECURITY ASPECTS OF VPN
In this section, I’m gonna be discussing about why we should have a VPN in terms of security. There is a major issue in Public WiFi systems as anyone can connect with it without any PassCode.
Because of this, anyone can connect to it and when some Attacker/Hacker is connected to a same network as us, he can see what we are surfing in the internet without our knowledge. There is also a potential risk that he can get hold of our important Password Credentials.
Let me list out to you the Attacks that a Hacker can implement on you :
- (MITM)Man In The Middle Attack
- Phishing Attack
- BruteForce Attack
Through these Attacks, a Hacker can also get hold of your banking information if you do payment through a Public WIFI/Network. So make sure to be connected to a trusted VPN provider before making transactions and other confidential stuff in Public WIFI.
BEST VPN RECOMMENDATIONS
