Top 3 Reasons why you need a VPN?
VPN( Virtual Private Network) is a connection to internet enhancing the security and adding privacy. When you use the VPN your original IP address is replaced by the IP address from the virtual network provider. It adds security and privacy to your connections.
Here I list the main reasons to use VPN and why it is necessary in modern day to day internet surfing.
1. Add Security and Privacy
When you are connected to internet, there is two way connection of data from your device to the server. It is usually safe when you are utilizing the internet from your home, but it is really risky when you are using public internet for example from Coffee Shop , Shopping Mall etc. When you are connected to public internet in these common places, your information and connection can be compromised, which can reveal your internet activity to the hacker. They can access your account password, bank details and almost everything that are in your devices.
You can avoid all these by using VPN. When you use VPN, you information is passed through the secure network of virtual network provider and hacker cannot access the your connections. Hence, VPN makes your connection secure and saves you from hackers.
2. To Hide Your Activity
VPN can be used to hide your online activity from others. When you are connected to internet from VPN, it provides you with different IP address than the one from your ISP( Internet Service Provider). Your ISP can block certain sites and you can access those sites from VPN and it hides your activity.
You can also use VPN in your work, if your work has restricted you from accessing certain websites. For example, some employers restrict your network from accessing social media websites, YouTube and you can easily bypass this by using VPN to access this restricted sites.
3. Access geo-blocked Contents

You can access the Geo-restricted content by using VPN as VPN provides you with the flexibility of choosing the IP address from your choose country. You can choose the IP address from USA and access the US Netflix where you can access more media content compared to Netflix Australia.
