Use the Internet but don’t trust it. This is the basic principle I’ve adapted to stay safe while using the internet for more than a decade now. And, I recommend everybody else to not trust the internet with their personal information because even if you trust the person whom you sending these details online, you never know who is tracking you to gain access of this sensitive information in the midway.
Your internet can be monitored, your computer, smartphone or other connected devices can be hacked, your message can be tampered with, your webcam can be accessed remotely and a lot of unpleasant things can happen to you if your internet connection is not secured. Anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware, etc. only protect your computer from any suspicious file. They don’t provide protection to the internet connection from where lots of malicious attempts happen which can cause great damage.
Unfortunately, the internet doesn’t come with any such protection that can prevent you from becoming a victim of any of these cyber threats but hey, there are VPN services which can help you in staying safe online. VPN or Virtual Private Networks are meant to provide protection layer to your internet connection so that you can browse it with full freedom without making yourself vulnerable.
And, a good VPN service goes far ahead than just providing online protection. They don’t only keep your internet ultra-secure but also allow you to mask your IP with a fake location, unblock websites, access region-blocked content, encrypt data, and choose from multiple servers around the world to browse the internet. Among all such elite VPN services, a popular name is TorGuard.
