Having a layer of security that blocks people from watching you browse helps keep you safe online, no matter where you connect from.
Virtual private networks protect you by creating an encrypted "tunnel" that all of your device's data travels through on its way to the internet via a proxy server or service. Encryption turns words and data, like text files, into a secret code. If someone tries to read encrypted data without the password, they'll see random gibberish., there is always a trail back to Ghana that is easy to spot 4:07 PM
