Today I am here to tell you a few reasons why you should use VPN. But before we get into that, let’s try and checkout what a VPN actually is.
A VPN, which is a Virtual Private Network forms an encrypted connection between you and the websites that you visit. Now this connection is through a VPN server, which could actually be anywhere in this world.
And that is the reason why it gets so difficult for anyone, even your Internet Service Provider, to figure out where you are and what you have been upto. Ok, now that we have a basic idea of what a VPN is and we also know that its very good for security.
Reasons why you should use a VPN
The first reason is to safely use Public Wifi. Now all of us know that public wifi isnt always safe, but we still end up using it.And that I understand because who doesnt love free stuff right? The problem with public wifi is that because it isn’t encrypted, so anyone with a fishy mind could eavesdrop on your internet activity and may even steal your identity.
But with a VPN, you’ll be able to access the free, public WiFi without any worries because A) it will encrypt all your data andB) it will let you mask your identity.
Also, do keep in mind that a VPN can be used on both, your laptops and smartphones.
The next reason why you should use a VPN isto enjoy all the content on your favourite streaming websites. Now I’m sure you’ll agree with me that sits very annoying and upsetting if you can’t watch a movie just because it is not available for your country. So for country specific content, you can use a VPN to change your location.
And then binge-watch your favourite moviesand shows anytime, all the time. Even though companies such as Netflix are voicing up against the use of a VPN, it still works nonetheless.
And obviously, you would still have to pay up for the subscription of these websites, sadly. But If you don’t want to do that and if you want to watch videos and movies and TV shows for free, then do watch this video that we created sometime ago and you should not be disappointed.
The 3rd reason is when you want to hide from Google.
Now we all know that Google itself provides options to do that, but we cant really trust them right, because they have been surrounded by so many controversies related to data tracking that I think VPN is surely a better way.
Using a good VPN service will let you manipulate your IP address, cloak your internet traffic and then do your work without worrying aboutGoogle tracking you all the time. And if you thought “I can use incognitomode for that”, well you’re not completely right because Incognito mode isnt as safeas you think.
Your ISP can still track all your internetactivity and then who knows, Google might also be doing it.
Clarify a few things
First of, you need to know that using a VPN might slow down your internet speed a little and so I don’t recommend using it all the time. Use it only when you actually feel the need to.
And the second this is that don’t fall forfree VPNs. These free VPNs are normally a trap and in any case they have a cap on the time you can use their service for. And if not that then there is a high probability that they’ll sell your data for advertisement and what not. So pay up a little, and be extra safe! The 4th reason is a very strong one, and that is, to open blocked websites.
Now you could face this situation if your school or your workplace has blocked websites for you and actually there are many times when the government also blocks websites. So for example, we can’t open torrent freaks at our workplace, which is super weird because it’s just a news website.
So, we obviously use a VPN, because it manipulates the IP address and make it seem like we’re sitting somewhere else. Ok guys, I need to put a disclaimer here that, most of these organizations normally have their own reasons to block websites.
Now it’s a completely different story if these reasons are valid or not, So I will leave it upto you to decide if you still want toaccess these websites using VPN or not. Ok now, I am going to keep this last point a little more generic and say that there are many situations where we need that extra bitof security while browsing the web.
Now this could be if you want to carry out a research that you don’t want anyone else to find out about or if you know that there’someone tracking you and you want to hide from them.
So Using the VPN, you’ll be able to cloak your internet activity and your identity and then just go ahead with your work seamlessly. Having said that, there’s another disclaimer here and that is to not use this method to hoodwink your ISP to do anything dangerous illegal.
So basically use VPN wisely.
All right guys, that’s the end of this video and thank you so much for watching it. We have used CyberGhost and NordVPN for this video and we have also been using ExpressVPN and PIA for a very long time. Do let us know if you know of any other Good services.
And no, this video has not been sponsored any of these services so dont think along those lines.
