VPNs on the Rise

By | source: Sep 24th, 2012

In the day and age where advancements to technology (specifically the Internet) are happening at such a high pace, it’s sometimes easy to feel like you’ve been left in the dust. Among all the new phones, tablets and even TVs that are seemingly coming out every month, the position of being completely technologically current is less and less stable. Some things are more permanent than others, though, while still advancing quickly; things like methods of connecting.

Today’s infographic is brought to you by and it explains the many helpful uses of having a VPN (or Virtual Private Network) on your connection. Let’s say you’re taking a vacation in a foreign country, one whose Internet restrictions don’t allow access to the same sites that you would normally go to. With a VPN you would be able to use an American or British IP so that you can still upload all of those fun vacation videos on the go. They even allow you to secure your browsing in public WiFi hotspots.
