Why Use a VPN?
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is highly recommended to use when operating with cryptocurrencies. With so many threats and blocks emerging against a decentralized economy, VPN adds extra protection by hiding your data. It helps to overcome censorship and protects your privacy. Using a VPN and PGO 3.0 with shielded transactions will provide you with ultimate privacy protections (see Medium article https://cryptorigvin.medium.com/what-is-pgo-3-0-405f6312a6a9).
How VPN works?
When you install and enable VPN, the software starts to encrypt your data. This data firstly goes to the VPN server and then to the online destination. In that way your online destination sees the data coming from a VPN and not from your device. With a VPN you can change your location and protect your data.
No one can easily identify you, your device, your browsing activity and track your IP. To put it simply — the VPN is what mediating your interactions with online destinations and offers protection for your internet access. Another security implication is using a VPN when on public WiFi can stop Man in the Middle attacks.
How to choose a VPN?
There are many options on the internet out there. Which VPN to choose is really up to you. Depending on your demands, you can choose a paid VPN (which usually costs around $4 per month) or search for free versions. Keep in mind, free options usually have limitations and may affect your internet speed.
