VPN and Data Security

Data security is an essential aspect of modern living that’s often ignored. Data breaches can compromise your privacy and can lead to financial loss in the event of a breach of your personal bank account, or the marketing database of your business.

A VPN helps to protect your personal information as well as business data. By encrypting your online activity this makes it difficult for anyone to track your data or metadata. This is done by scrambling it into a non-readable code jumble, which means that only your device and the VPN server are able to unscramble it and reassemble it into readable form.

If you’ve been in the past and logged into your banking account in a hotel room, or purchased a product on your favorite website when using Wi-Fi in public areas, chances are your personal data was exposed to cybercriminals. A VPN secures your browsing data and private information by creating an encrypted tunnel through which data can travel.

The data you transmit over the internet is divided into packets that carry different kinds of information like your IP address and the site you’re on. When you connect to VPN VPN the data packets of your data are encased in an outer layer of encryption that’s virtually impenetrable to hackers. A VPN hides your IP address, in addition to encrypting the data. This prevents identity thieves from linking search and browsing activity to your actual name and even your location.
