What are the benefits and why do I need a VPN?

Overview

A common misconception among the general public is that "it won't happen to me". While admittedly there are varying degrees of cyber attacks, it's important to be protected from all of them. For example, 79% of website collect your data. This is a simple invasion of privacy, but something that we don't consider when browsing the web on a daily basis. A more dangerous example is ransomware attacks. Ransomware attacks are becoming more and more prevalent every day. At the end of 2016, there was a victim of a ransomware attack every 40 seconds.

There are lots of reasons to why you need a VPN, and a few of these reasons are listed below.

Protect Yourself

The core feature behind a VPN is the security and encryption. Our VPN encrypts your network traffic to protect all of your online data. VirtualShield's network uses patented technology to encrypt and protect your private online activity from potential hackers. What this means is that your entire internet connection is passed through our servers to give you a private tunnel to the internet, preventing third-parties from seeing what you're doing.

Your IP address is your online address. It can show your city, state, country or even exactly what building you're in. This means that it can easily be traced back to you if it is left exposed online. By using a VPN you are getting a completely random IP address that can only be traced back to us, leaving you completely anonymous and protected.

Summary: A VPN protects you from cyber attacks.

Price Discrimination

You may not be aware of this, but many companies will also change their prices depending on your location. Such as hotel prices and airline tickets, and so on. 

Using a VPN will allow you to change your location and get the best rates, no matter where you are located. You can choose where in the world you want to be, and virtually "teleport" there so that you can browse the web as if you were in that country. 

Summary: Use a VPN to find the best rates on hotels, flights, and more.
