Something about VPN that you should know

VPN, Virtual Private Network, has become more and more popular as more and more workers work from home or travel on business. A VPN allows people connect their devices to their office network even if they are far away from their offices. If the workers who are on a business trip want to get company resources over the Internet, connecting to a VPN will really help. And you don’t need to worry about the security of your company resources because the resources don’t have to be uncovered directly on the Internet. In addition, when you connect to a VPN, browsing activity will be hided from your local network and ISP (Internet Service Provider). If you are using Wi-Fi connection, someone who attempt to spy on you will be able to see your browsing activity. So if you want to hide your browse activity when you use Wi-Fi, I advise you to use VPN in order to keep your privacy in safety.
