Why are you not using a VPN?

written by Shane "Geek" Lundberg September 15, 2017

You know what’s scary….? Think about how many times in one day you access vital information on a network you are unaware of. Think how many times you check that credit card account, bank account, reset a password, download something, and so so much more. Now that you are thinking about that…think how many other people are on that same network. Do you know them all? Are they your BFF’s? Trust worthy people who you would give keys to your house?

In this day and age keys to your internet life is far more scary than keys to your house. Luckily there are ways to make sure that your browsing history, downloads, and more are secured…unfortunately most of you are not using it. Now, when I ask friends and family why they are not using secure VPN’s I hear they are either unaware or afraid of the difficult set up. I can see that. This post is for those of you out there.

Truthfully, a few years ago I tried a VPN service and it was so difficult to get things set up that I stopped using it almost immediately. For the last few weeks I have been using one of the highest rated VPN services, NordVPN. From the initial download to the setup I could see that NordVPN really changed the game when it came to the issues I had in the past. I downloaded the program directly from their site and installed the program on my PC. Once installed, the program booted up, had me sign in and pick the closest sever to me. Once I picked and turned on the connect button I was protected from the internet baddies out there. The program looks great and made the installation so easy.

Everything I do these days depends on my internet and speeds in my house and office. I am very happy to say that with NordVPN I did not notice a drop in speeds. With over 1,000 different servers, 6 simultaneous connections and unlimited bandwidth I was able to do what I needed to do while being safe, secure, and without a loss to my connection.

NordVPN has also made it very easy to utilize the security of their VPN on all devices in my life. From my MacBook Pro while mobile, my Android mobile, and my desktop PC all now are safe and secure. Since using this service I feel a ton better while in a coffee shop connected to a network or even from peering internet eyes while at home.
